In her teens, Zoe was diagnosed with a degenerative condition that meant at given moment she could faint, have a panic attack or dislocate one of her limbs. Sometimes all three.
With Sheila by her side, life's now possible for Zoe
Zoe & Sheila
At a time when the world should’ve been opening up for 16-year-old Zoe, all she could see were the walls closing in on her. Now, having Sheila’s support not only makes everyday life possible for Zoe, it’s also bringing unexpected freedoms.
When Zoe met her “wonderdog” Sheila, perfectly matched in personality and needs, doors began to open for her. Quite literally. With Sheila’s help, Zoe could attend lectures more easily. She could meet her friends. She get around without feeling constantly exhausted and powerless.
One day, after blacking out at the top of my stairlift, Zoe woke up halfway down the stairs.
Being able to connect with the outside world has brought Zoe even more freedom and confidence — and the chance to make more friends. Thanks to Sheila, Zoe’s also been able to complete her degree in archeology and is now pursuing a career in teaching the subject she's passionate about.
Your support will enable more people to make life possible.
