One of the best feelings in the world is when you can help to change someone’s life in a positive way. This isn’t the only reason we run Project 2 Heal, but it’s certainly a terrific bonus when our best support dogs are able to make an impact.
I wanted to point out an example of someone who has come to us for help. This email is from a man whose 45-year old son Ricky has Down’s Syndrome. Here is what he said:
I have a son with Down’s Syndrome. His name is Richard, but we call him Ricky. At times he is sad and a little agitated. Our hearts suffer a lot when we see him like that. I read your story and i was impressed with the effect that your dogs have in persons like Ricky. He is 45 years of age, but with the mind of a 6 year old. If there’s anything you can do for him we will be forever grateful. By the way Ricky is very fond of animals.
