The journey of NSD Whitney & Molly
In 2019 we placed NSD Whitney with a Canadian Veteran Molly, and the impact was immediate and profound. According to Molly, “NSD Whitney has made more of a difference in my life than I ever thought possible. When I am having a nightmare I toss and talk in my sleep and NSD Whitney hops up on the bed and licks my neck and she will lay over my legs and feet until I have calmed down.”
Molly ventured out a couple of times a month accompanied by a family member, she is now going out alone with NSD Whitney several times a week; including the recent Climate Change Strike and the Brampton Santa Claus Parade as a Celebrity Clown. Whether she is shopping, going to appointments or taking her young granddaughter out for some one on one time, “it is so much fun for all of us to be out together with NSD Whitney taking care of all of us”.
