David Kelly

From: Reading, MA
Program: Service Dog
Minimum Goal: $8,000 | Amount Raised:$1,650

Hello. I am David Kelly. I am the father of four adult daughters! I have been battling Multiple Sclerosis since 1989 – 29 years. I have never stopped moving – which I attribute to the reason why I am still able to get around.

I have been accepted for a Service Dog. The dog will do things for me such as retrieve items, pick up things I have dropped, turn off lights and many other helpful tasks. With the dog’s assistance, I will be able to preserve some of my energy to do other day to day things for myself so I can continue to be mobile and maintain my independence.

*NEADS clients pledge to raise a minimum of $8,000 for the organization, thus allowing us to fulfill our mission of placing Service Dogs with individuals who benefit from them the most.  Each donation ensures that NEADS will continue to change lives with our World Class Service Dogs.
