My 7 year old daughter Rayanie recently recieved Chief, an assistance dog from NEADS. Rayanie has Williams syndrome -- a genetic condition that is present at birth and characterized by medical problems including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning disabilities.

Chief will assist her with her emotional feelings as well as give her a feeling of acceptance when communicating with peers. Having Chief will help her improve her anxiety and give her comfort when feeling overwhelmed, which can help her feel more relaxed when going to doctor's appointments and trips to Children's Hospital. She will focus more on reading, homework, and activities to help with her school progress.

The true cost of all this specialized training for Chief is over $25,000. I have been asked to raise $9,500 of the full amount. Would you consider making a Tax-Deductible donation to NEADS with my daughter's name?

As a mother I strive for nothing but the best in everything I do. I would greatly appreciate your donation and help sponsoring Rayanie and Chief. I would be happy to meet you with Chief. All sponsors are invited to attend our graduation -- a unique and heartwarming event.

Thank you in advance for your kind consideration. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
