Her Service Dog Helped Her Feel Independent Throughout High School And College And Now She’s Trying To Help Him Beat Cancer

Still, Danielle recognized that not only was Thai worth more to her than anything, but he had saved her time and again. “Service dogs are considered medical equipment; this dog served as my critical medical device for over four years. How can I not give him the best medical treatment?”

As a grad student with limited work opportunities—due to discriminatory hiring practices surrounding disability—Danielle was unsure how she could afford to save her best friend.

In a later update posted to the GoFundMe, she shared that treatment and medications had compounded to a whopping $13,000. But Danielle still won’t give up on Thai because he never gave up on her.
