Seizure Alert Dog / Depression Service Dog,
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
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.
