“She’s made the biggest impact in a positive way to everything I do.”
Ebony was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa when she was just two years old. At 23, Ebony now has less than 1% vision remaining and has long been waiting for a Guide Dog to provide her with the freedom and independence that was missing from her life.
Thanks to generous supporters like you, we were able to match Ebony with Guide Dog ‘Hollie’ and create an incredible partnership that has changed both of their lives forever.
Unfortunately of the 30 Queenslanders currently on our waiting list, there are still 10 young people just like Ebony waiting to receive a Guide Dog to provide the independence they need to open up their future.
Ebony and ‘Hollie’ have only been working together for a short time, but when asked just how much her new Guide Dog had changed her life, Ebony said, “She’s changed everything. Just everything.”
“I feel more confident, I feel free, I feel independent, I feel comfortable and I just really enjoy working with her. From when we’re at home, to when we’re working together, to when we’re in a social setting – just in every aspect of my life she’s improved it in every way.”
We want to improve the lives of as many young people living with blindness or low vision that we can, but with a cost of more than $35,000 to breed, raise and train every Guide Dog, we can’t do it without you.
Please donate today so we can ensure the young Queenslanders just like Ebony on our waiting list will experience brighter futures with a Guide Dog by their side.
