Cameron Johnston

Cameron JohnstonCameron Johnston is a smart, loving, and adventurous 16 month old boy. At just 13 months old, Cameron was taken to his pediatrician’s office to be evaluated for having cold-like symptoms. During this visit, Cameron had a Tonic-Clonic (formerly known as Grand Mal) seizure, lasting 18 minutes long. Cameron was subsequently diagnosed with a having a seizure disorder and has had ongoing seizures ever since. Our family has partnered with the non-profit organization 4 Paws For Ability in order to pair Cameron with a Seizure Assistance Dog. This Dog will be trained to perform a number of tasks designed to support Cameron with his specific needs.

As the cost of training a Seizure Assistance Dog is high, we are asking for our community’s help in raising the funds needed. Our Seizure Assistance Dog will not only be a true, life-long companion for Cameron, but also an additional member of his support system and our family.  

It costs at least $40,000 to specially train a dog for Cameron. Families cover only a portion of that cost, a fee of $17,000.  We are fundraising to help cover the fee required to provide Cameron with a life-changing service dog. Donations in support of Cameron should be made directly to 4 Paws for Ability – be sure to write “Cameron Johnston” on the memo line.  Mail checks to:
