My name is Eric Bellavance and I'm 52 years old. I have a condition called Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy which causes wasting and weakening muscles throughout my body. It also causes cardiac and respiratory issues. This is a genetic condition which has affected several members of my family. About ten years ago I started experiencing difficulty with climbing stairs and walking up inclines. Since then I have progressed an now walk with aid of a cane and use a mobility scooter regularly. The dexterity of my hands has been an increasing problem over the past few years.

Because of a rare metabolic disorder, Gabrielle has brain damage which causes balance issues, poor muscle tone, and difficulty with her fine motor skills and speech. A dog would be her friend and help with daily activities. 

Hello, my name is Marie Neault. I suffer nerve damage and chronic pain associated with numerous surgeries to treat endometriosis. So many damaging aspects of my surgeries, including scar tissue, have damaged most of my internal organs and complications continue.

Hi my name is Jessica Sinclair and I am a third year student at Rochester Institute of Technology, studying Journalism. I am trying to raise funds for a Hearing Dog to help me to live independently. I am currently working at Walmart Store, part-time while attending school, in hopes of earning funds towards my goal of acquiring a Hearing dog.

Hi, my name is Vanessa Colesworthy and I am a United Church of Christ pastor in coastal Maine. There are many needs in my community which I feel a NEADS dog could meet. My dog will accompany me as I visit people in homes, nursing facilities, hospitals, and local schools as well as in my duties as a chaplain to the fire and police departments. I can't wait to meet my new partner in ministry and am asking for any contributions that will help me meet my goal. Thanks and blessings!
