There is an Air Force family in need right here in middle Georgia. I am hoping that someone out there can help the family out. The family of Eddie Davies Jr is trying to raise the money to get him a service dog from the group 4 Paws for Ability.
Little Eddie has 9P deletion, also called Alfi’s syndrome, and an 8Q duplication of his chromosomes. The first involves the partial deletion of a chromosome and the second involves the duplication of another.
The family needs to raise at least $13,000 in order to get little Eddie this dog that will enable them to rest easier. The service dog will be trained to alert the family when Eddie is about to have a seziure.
