Wondering how a service dog may help you?

Wondering how a service dog may help you?

By Kim Lozano, RN
Registered Nurse

It’s our pleasure to announce that Buddy Hayes will be coming to the MS Center on October 21! Buddy is a motivational speaker who’s passionate about educating the public on the daily challenges that people with disabilities face and how they overcome them. She is a retired certified therapeutic recreation specialist as well as a veteran of the US Army.

Buddy has been living with multiple sclerosis for many years and she’s turned her diagnosis into an opportunity to change the way that the world perceives people with disabilities. Buddy has shown that she is not only an inspirational speaker, but she’s also unafraid to take on any challenge. Just a few of her many accomplishments include skiing, rock climbing, surfing, scuba diving, and winning the title of Ms. Wheelchair Virginia 2007-2008. One of the many ways that Buddy takes on challenges is with the help of her service dog, Stanford.

On October 21, Buddy (and Stanford) will be coming to the MS Center to talk about what a service dog is, how to obtain one, and how they can change a life forever.

We welcome all who’d like to attend Buddy’s presentation:

October 21st 1:00-2:00 pm
Hedreen Wellness Studio, MS Center
Jefferson Tower, Level A
