Hi! My name is Emmalynn and I am 4 and a half years old. I am here to share my story and ask for your help.
At 18 months old, I was diagnosed with a widespread developmental delay. Since then,
I have fought very hard to overcome many obstacles. Over the last three years I have also been
diagnosed with Classic Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Epilepsy and Hypotonic Cerebral Palsy.
I wear little braces to keep me stable and help combat the fatigue of physical activity.
I have a special helmet that keeps me safe on the wobbly days, but even those days don’t slow
me down for long. My mom and dad say that my heart is so big it shines through my every smile.
And I never pass a dandelion by without stopping to make a wish.
I have a very large team of doctors, therapists, teachers, friends and family that
have helped me along my journey. And now, with your help, I would like to add one
more member to TEAM EMMA…A MULTI-PURPOSE SERVICE DOG.
A SERVICE DOG will help me with:
- Confidence and Stability
- Companionship on the hard days and for doctor appointments
- Alert my loved ones of a seizure
- Help me be more independent in a crowd
It will cost 4 Paws for Ability, Inc $22,000 to place a multi-purpose service dog with Emmalynn. We are committed to raise $13,000 on behalf of Emma and her service dog.
