Rowan looks forward to being placed with his ECAD Service Dog, who will be specially trained to help him learn to walk and also alert Rowan’s mom if he falls.
Meet ECAD Client Rowan Miller
My name is Rowan Miller and I am here today to ask for your help.
Although I am a lot like most 4 year olds; lover of animals, being outside in the nice weather and hanging out with my family, every day is a battle for me.
You see, when I was born the doctors noticed something was not quite right with my muscles. They told my parents that my muscles would not develop like the other kids. This began mine and my family’s journey of trying to find a way for me to survive.
And today, you can be a part of this journey with your amazing support!
I was diagnosed with a unique congenital condition caused by a genetic mutation. My condition causes hypotonia, or very low muscle tone. I am not able to sit up on my own and my parents still have to assist me with eating. I have not been able to hit most of the physical milestones that would be expected of someone my age.
I am sure you can imagine how difficult my life has been.
But today, I have hope!
I have hope that I will be able to live my life with more independency while pursuing my dreams of becoming a fireman when I grow up. And with your help, my dreams can come true!
With your help, I will be able to retrieve the items I drop while in my wheelchair.
With your help, I will have help with balance and finally start learning how to walk!
With your help today, me and others like me will be one step closer to receiving a ECAD Service Dog that will allow us to live life on our terms.
Thank you for gifts made in my honor to help me and other people like me. We greatly appreciate your generous support!
