"Stitch" is coming soon

We're getting a service dog. Christopher's already decided on the name "Stitch" (as in "Lilo and Stitch"). We go to Ohio for our tw0-week training in less than 3 weeks! We still have a significant hurdle between now and then.... money.

We held a "Beans and Ham Dinner" and Silent Auction fundraiser on Saturday night at Union Chapel. Unfortunately, the turnout was very sparse and we fell drastically short of our $5000.00 goal.

The good news is that our hotel stay appears to be taken care of by fundraisers held at the hotel (Hilton Homewood Suites) and, if needed, by Hilton Honors points from a caring friend.

We have needs for equipment/supplies for the dog, some of our meals in Ohio (3 adults, one child), gasoline and RENTAL of a wheelchair accessible van (more than $100 per day).

Please spread the word and thank you for your prayers! Love, Claudia
