I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am for the effort and support you provided for me and my service dog Keegan. In 2008 I was diagnosed with Juvenile Myclonic Epilepsy and it was a huge life style change. Dealing with this disorder made me realize how much of a burden it can become on others to always feel the need to “take care” of me, so to speak. I grew up living a very independent life where I’d rather do things myself instead of having to depend on others. Especially being in college, depending on other people can be tricky and I never knew whose hands I could be putting my life in. After having multiple seizures a day while in my dorm leading to an enormous amount of concussions which effected my study routine, I realized I needed something else other than having someone check up on me every hour or sleep over in my room. So I decided to invest in a service dog. Being a college student, funds were always very tight even while working 2 jobs. But I realized that this dog can potentially save my life and being in a financial pinch will be worth it in the end. After signing up with the trainer to receive Keegan, someone had recommended I get in contact with JoshProvides to help elevate some of the financial burden. I reached out to Mr.Chapnick and he was SO helpful and very responsive to any questions I had regarding the grant process. After submitting my application, it was within 24 hours I had been approved and I broke down in tears. I was stressing so much over the cost of Keegan that I wasn’t fully taking care of myself and worrying so much about how I’m going to get by each month with my bills. JoshProvides gave me a huge sense of relief and so great to work with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done for me and the rest of the epilepsy community. I can finally feel at peace with an awesome dog that can save my life.
