Help Meredith

A Special Message From Meredith

Hi, I'm Meredith.  Since October, my family and I have been on a mission to raise enough money to get a service dog. This service dog will help with my mobility and assist with pain management. I'm very excited about it.  

For those of you do not know me, I am a 14-year-old girl and three years ago I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). EDS is a connective tissue disorder that can trigger moderate to severe pain - depending on the day and circumstances. After much consideration, my family and I both felt that a service dog would help improve the quality of my life. 

The great news is, thanks to so many of you,we have reached our goal, and I will be getting a PAALS service dog partner!  PAALS is an amazing organization and I'm very thankful for them.  I'm hoping you will continue to join me in fun fundraising events for PAALS so that they can touch even more lives.

Thank you so much,

-Mer (:
