When Adira visited ECAD, and met several of the Service Dogs-in-Training, 

she knew immediately that a service dog will improve her quality of life.


Meet ECAD Client Adira Koosis

My name is Adira, and I am a 22-year-old college student, artist, and published writer. I have quite the collection of diagnoses, among them Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome, endometriosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder. As a result of these conditions, I cope with unpredictable anaphylactic episodes, joint pain, muscle pain, fainting, fatigue, flashbacks, tics, and nightmares (to name a few). On a good day, I can walk without aid, but on a bad day, I can only get around in my wheelchair.

A service dog would dramatically increase my independence and security. My service dog will be able to retrieve my emergency medications, elevate my legs to prevent fainting, nudge me to help me out of flashbacks, pick up a dropped cane, and so much more. In addition to potentially saving my life, having a trained canine companion by my side will be comforting and confidence-boosting.

Please consider making a donation to ECAD in my name to help me — and ultimately, many others — obtain a service dog. For me, a service dog means freedom. And everyone deserves to be free.

Thank you for your generous gifts to ECAD in honor of Adira Koosis.
Donations are 100% tax-deductible as allowable by law.  If your employer has a Matching Gift program, please complete the form and
