Hi. My name is Issac and I am 14 years old and recently diagnosed with Autism and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. It took a while for my doctor to diagnose me because appointments are overwhelming for me and I usually shut down rather than participate. Getting out into my community has also proven to be a big challenge for me... as you can imagine that makes it hard for me to make friends or enjoy the simpler things in life like going shopping or out to eat. I'm entering high school in the fall and i cant put into words how scary that is for me. A NEADS Service Dog will be a big asset to me because it's my chance at increased independence and self-sufficiency. Regardless, I really am a fun guy with a good sense of humor. I enjoy funny movies and building my legos but my favorite thing to do of all is spend time with my Mom. My Mom has always been my biggest support and I'm her biggest fan. My family and I are so thankful for this opportunity!
*Issac is being asked to raise $8,000 to helps NEADS offset the $42,000 cost of a Service Dog. Please consider making a tax deductible donation on his behalf. Thank you!
