|Zander, The Z-Man, is my 8 year old grandson, my little Nugget.|
SWEET LITTLE ZANDER NEEDS A SERVICE DOG! A good doggie match has been found and now funds must be raised - every dollar helps. His dog will help him in many ways, but most importantly she will help keep him safe. Please help unite Zander with Service Dog Sheila!

There is much more to Prader Willi Syndrome than hyperphagia, and there a number of ways in which a service dog will aid Zander, but the critical thing, THE reason Z-Man NEEDS one, is that a specifically trained service dog will help KEEP HIM SAFE. A service dog trainer has recently identified Sheila, a 4 yr old black lab, as a suitable match and already begun training her to meet Z-Man's particular needs.
We are appealing to everyone to help unite Zander with his service dog Sheila by donating if they are willing and able (even one dollar - every dollar counts!) and by promoting his cause. An added, and ultimately more important, benefit of sharing Z-Man's cause is that doing so will also help spread Prader Willi Awareness. Those interested in supporting the PWS cause directly can donate to the Federation for Prader-Willi Research help fund important research or to the Prader-Willi Sydrome Association USA or the International Prader-Willi Syndrome Organisation to help support families and individuals with PWS.
