Elaine & Service Dog Rudy

"Her training...yes, she's a dog, but she's perfect.  She helps me to get up, to stand up when I fall down.  She's just everywhere.  The one thing she has brought to me the most is safety.  I feel safer now I have her with me. I want to thank my family, my friends, John and Gerry, Christy, and just everybody who has a part in NEADS.  They're all amazing people, and you have no idea how much you have touched my life, Rudy's life, and everywhere we go there's a conversation about NEADS.  She's an icebreaker, and she's just meant to be.  I thank you all for standing by my side and helping me to achieve this wonderful dream."
