“Dior saved my marriage”
In 2004, when Anthony was slightly over 12 years of age, he was hit by a speeding driver and suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury. His options were limited as his ability to both walk and talk was affected. He could not return to school for several years. With Filo by his side, Anthony graduated from High School and is attending college.
"Filo has allowed Anthony the freedom to have a life of his own. He is a young guy now and he needs his privacy. It is so fantastic that he can leave the house on his own, go from place to place. When he comes back, he tells such great stories about where he and Filo have been. As a mom, I feel that he is secure with Filo, that he is safe."
“Garrison is my dearest friend and companion. The constant fear of dropping things, facing a closed door or potentially falling has been allayed by his presence. He is always standing by ready to help. I know that my family rests easier as well. They know when they leave me, I am in good hands (paws really)! While my disability will never go away, it has been made easier to deal with by having him by my side. Now that I have him, I can’t imagine life without him.
Thank you ECAD for all that you do. “
We've had Baker for 2 1/2 years. Since Baker joined our family, we've experienced more freedom and even bonded more as a family. Micah not only can go to stores, but can hike with us as a family. My other children feel more normal when we're out in public. We have a sense of pride when out with Baker. He's beautiful and lets people know how special our family is. We love him and are eternally grateful for this gift from ECAD.
