Seizure Alert Dog / Depression Service Dog, Marc's Story

Seizure Alert DogMy husband Marc was a successful general contractor in Central Florida who was involved in numerous projects within the Disney community.

Four years ago he suffered a traumatic brain injury that left him with severe neurological damage, and he lost his ability to speak. As a result of his injury Marc also suffers from major depression as well as seizures.

Marc, was once a vibrant man, but has now lost his drive and energy to do anything. After all of the surgeries, and countless hours of rehabilitation, Marc has shown little enthusiasm towards his outlook on life and his future.

Our neurologist suggested we look into a service dog to help assist Marc with his seizures. After careful research, we met Jason DeVito the owner of Canines4hope. Jason paired Marc up with Dillon, A two year old German Shepherd Dog who is trained as a seizure response dog for Marc.

The addition of Dillon in our lives has been a true blessing. The difference in my husbands behavior, and outlook on life is remarkable. Marc is a changed man. His bouts of depression have improved, and his energy level is totally increased. Marc and Dillon are outside every morning playing ball or Frisbee. He takes Dillon for three walks a day at least.

Dillon is now beginning to recognize when Marc is about to have a seizure, which makes me feel a whole lot better when I have to leave Marc alone.

Dillon has changed our lives in so many ways that words cannot express my feelings. If you or someone you know, is in a similar situation as Marc or myself, we highly encourage you to explore the benefits of a service dog.
