A friend of mine from my Kickboxing class has a son who is autistic. They are trying to raise funds to get the little boy an aid dog. It will cost somewhere near $15,000 for the family to get the dog. The mother was talking a little about it tonight. Her son does not handle public situations very well and has been known to have meltdowns and run off when he is outside the home. They are hoping an aid dog will help keep the boy calm and safer. I will likely donate. I only hope the family can raise the money quickly.
