A dream come true
When Sam was matched with Ember, a hearing dog for deaf children, he felt as if his dreams had come true. Her presence changed Sam’s life making him feel less isolated and he now sleeps soundly in his Lytham home knowing that Ember is beside him, ready to alert him should the fire alarm goes off. She wakes him in the morning and delivers messages between Sam and family members. With newly increased confidence and inspired by his trusty dog, Sam began to organise talks and fundraising events for Hearing Dogs, earning him a place on the Youth Advisory Board for the National Deaf Children’s Society.
