Tiffany Ryan a wonderful teacher at Carson City Elementary has begun a fund raiser to help one of her students that is suffering from deteriorating health issues. Her student Mason Burns is a 9 yr old suffering from Duchene Muscular Dystrophy.
Mason has trouble walking, he gets sore very easily and often needs help from fellow students. He often drops items that a service dog could help him with and the service dog could help with his mobility.
A service dog can help with those activities and that is why his school is helping to raise money to train Spider, a 6-month old German shepherd, to become his service dog helper.
The student council already held a penny drive that raised $3,000. $2,000 of that was used to buy Spider. They need about another $9,000 to finish Spider’s training.
Mason is hoping to have his new dog by the end of the school year.
