An assistance dog could change my friend Emma’s life

Sharing my beautiful friend Emma Miceli‘s story and fundraising campaign to help her get an assistance dog! Emma has severe autism and an intellectual disability. An assistance dog could change her life and support her everyday.

Please donate, share this page and help spread the word: https://www.mycause.com.au/…/help-change-a-young-womans-life

On the Disabled Wintersport Australia Women’s week camp, I was snow boarding with and guiding the beautiful Emma. She has severe autism and an intellectual disability. She’s also prone to wandering off and has been in quite some danger at times – something we witnessed even on the camp. I’m a volunteer guide with DWA and we support people like Emma to go to the snow.

To help her, Emma is getting an assistance dog. This will help with panic attacks and also help to find her if she does get lost.

Seeing someone with autism have a panic attack is heartbreaking and traumatic. It was hard to see her in such pain during these panic attacks. It’s also difficult to know how to manage it, but we did. The week taught me so much and gave me such a different view of what the world is like for others.

The assistance dog will be a great support to Emma in her everyday life. But they are expensive. So Emma’s family is fundraising to help with the cost of the dog and the extensive training it will need.

I’m sharing her fundraising page here and would be so grateful if you can share her story and/ or donate.

Thank you x
