When Julia and her husband, Ryan, visited ECAD and met several of the Service Dogs-in-Training,

they knew immediately that a service dog will improve Julia’s quality of life.


Meet ECAD Client Julia Munro

My name is Julia Munro. I live with my husband, Ryan, in Cambridge, MA. I am a master’s degree candidate in education. Once I graduate, I look forward to obtaining a middle or high school teaching position in general science or biology.

In 2001, I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Since then, I have also been diagnosed with EDS's associated conditions, such as Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, fibromyalgia, and sleep apnea. While these conditions don’t define me, they do provide obstacles and limitations to my daily living and when I travel.

An ECAD Service Dog would be a stabilizing force while I am walking or climbing stairs. A dog would also benefit me by bringing me items that I drop or need when I’m in too much pain to walk, such as my water bottle and medicine bag; and by opening doors when I don’t have the ability to pull them open by myself.

Having a specially-educated dog with me will make me feel more confident and relaxed going through my daily routine. It will also make Ryan much less worried about me when I am alone. Just knowing the dog is there to help me when I need it will improve the quality of our lives and will give me more independence.

Thank you for considering a donation to ECAD on behalf of myself and others who will benefit from obtaining an ECAD Service Dog.
