Please help support us in making a very deserving little boy happy,

This is Dan, Dan the Man. Dan lives here in RI with his family and although he was born with an extremely rare disability, (his parents were told he should not be alive) that prevents him from walking, requires him to have specialized medical treatments constantly and causes him chronic pain, he has a winning attitude and is loved by so many. This month Dan met a dog named ‘Puddles’. Dan was promised this dog by a couple who are getting divorced. Last minute, the husband decided to keep Puddles. Dan had no idea. As Dan’s siblings play on baseball teams and get ready to go to college, he was thrilled to have a companion and a friend all to himself. On Monday of this week a co-worker and mine began searching frantically for a replacement for Puddles that would be a good match for Dan and his family. We could not bare the thought of Dan’s mom having to tell him Puddles was not coming home. While watching Caddy Shack the movie Dan began calling the gopher Puddles and this made it even more difficult to tell him. To make this long story short, we found a dog! Dan loves her and her name is Daisy! She, of course, was an expensive little bugger. Dan’s family, my co-worker and myself were able to come up with most of the money; however, Dan’s formula and medication cost a lot of money each month and with the cost of the dog, her initial shots and spay we need to ask for some help. We are trying to raise $1000. Anything you can give is appreciated more than you know. Some time at the beginning of October we’d like to have a celebration-invite to follow-to allow you all to meet Dan and Daisy and give him the opportunity to thank you all personally. Thank you :)
