We just wanted to remind everyone that our walk, "Paws To Help" is this Saturday at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City at 11:00 am. We'll meet at the North East corner at the large pavilion. We have chosen to make this walk free, with no registration fee. It will be short, with a balloon release at the end. We will also have people from the Epilepsy Association of Utah there to answer any questions you might have. Come and support Cole and raise awareness for Dravet Syndrome and epilepsy. We are not sure that he can even come because the weather is predicting to be cold and he can not regulate his body temperature. Bring your sunglasses, and if you want, your dogs! If you want to donate, you can click on the link on our sidebar. It will take you to Cole's fundraising page. This money will go directly to 4 Paws For Ability and is tax deductible. We are raising this money in their behalf to support their mission to provide service dogs to those with disabilities.

The other $3,000 that we are hoping to raise separately, is to go towards travel costs for the two weeks we will need to spend in Ohio for training. We are about half-way to our goal and want to thank all of you that have donated so far! It means so much to us, and to Cole. To learn more about why we want a service dog for Cole, you can go here.


  1. Hi Niki and Cole - We are another 4 Paws for Abiity family. We recieved our seizure alert dog Ani alomost two years ago. She has been a blessing in so many ways. Hang in there, the process can be long and difficult but is worth it in the end.

    Take Care - Kathy, Nolan and Ani (as well as the rest of the family) if you want to chat

  2. Hey! I saw your an article on KSL about your cause. Have you considered adding a donation button to this blog through PayPal? Then people can donate through this page too.

  3. I just read your story on KSL. We received a multipurpose service dog for our son just last December, from 4 Paws for ability. Good luck with everything, let us know if we can help at all. My name is Sherrie, We live in UT county.
