Meet ECAD Client Walter “Wally” Fick

Hello, my name is Wally Fick and I am here today to ask for your help. 


Although I am a lot like you were at seven years old –playing with Thomas trains, and loving being outside to run and climb and explore, I fight a battle every day due to my anxiety attacks


You see, just a few months before I turned three years old, I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  This began my family’s journey of trying to find an easier way for me to live.  


Today, you can be part of the journey with your amazing support! 


Sadly, adventures out-of-doors are a huge challenge for my parents and my younger brothers because I often try to run away from them when we are walking outside.  Going to new places gives me a lot of anxiety, so more often than not my family has to stay inside so that I am safe. 


I am sure you can imagine how difficult life has been for my family and me.  However, today I have hope!


I have hope that I will be able to live my life with more independence while pursuing my dreams of traveling the world outside my home.  With your help, my dreams can come true! 


With your help, I will no longer have to be afraid.  I will have more independence and freedom.


With your help today, I will be one-step closer to receiving my ECAD Service Dog! 


Thank you for gifts made in my honor to help me and other kids like me. We greatly appreciate your generous support!
