Cameron is a 13-year-old boy with autism. He loves the outdoors, water, nature, his family and animals. He is social, but can't express himself in a way that is understandable to others. His sensory issues can become so overwhelming that he will suddenly behave very strangely and alarmingly. He is often misunderstood and avoided by his peers because of these obstacles. We wish he had a constant companion that he could love and who could help him deal with his anxiety, his sensory issues, his OCD and his social isolation. Cameron could truly grow from this relationship with a service dog from ADS. Please help us raise funds to give Cameron a chance to overcome his debilitating barriers in life and have a true friend.To donate to support Cameron please visit his fundraising page: Cameron's Furry Companion
