Danny and I went to Dayton, Ohio on Sunday. We met with a service dog trainer, Fran Morford. She has a little Black English Lab with Danny’s name on him. Beamer is ten months old and will be ready for Danny in about another ten months. This dog will be a companion to Danny. As you can imagine, when communication becomes a major issue, you feel isolated. Beamer will be trained as Danny’s companion. A Service Dog will help him with balance, retrieve dropped items and help in stressful situations. Beamer will go on walks with him as well. His doctor and therapists feel this is a great idea!!

Beamer is from a non-profit charity (TAX DEDUCTABLE). To cover the cost of Beamer, we need to raise $6000. Danny is applying for a Service Dog through Wagmor Service Dogs, a 501x (3) non-profit organization. The only way for Danny to get a Service Dog is with the help of the community, friends, and his family. If you feel this is a worthy cause and would like to donate, please make donations to:

If your place of work will let you, put out a can for donations and/or ask about having a $5.00 casual Fridays. Any amount will help. Any and all ideas welcomed. Please help us spread the word!!! Share, share, share!
This donation is tax deductible. Visit the wagmorservicedogs@ol.cp, or her FaceBook page at Wagmor service dogs.

As in the past, would you take a moment to say a prayer for Danny’s continued healing. They say there is power in pray. We ask that you do this on Christmas Eve at 6:00 PM.
I wanted to again thank each and everyone of you. Danny has come so far with your help. This last round at UMAP, WOW!!!! I can’t believe the improvement. Everyone who’s seen him is saying the same.
I was asked about the Fifth/Third Account. Yes, it is still open. The O’Keefe Family Assistance Fund or you can go to dannyokeefe.org and use the pay pal account.
We have delayed Danny’s next trip to UMAP until March. He is home for the next couple of months, taking therapy at Mercy Hospital. We love his therapists, Moe and Wes!!! They have worked with Danny for two years now and have become like family. He loves working with his personal trainer, Lisa as well! She donates her time to Danny.
He is now back to playing his drums. He told me it made him feel like he was getting a bit of his life back. He practices 3 hours each day. It’s a good work out for his arm and leg.
He’s been out with friends and family, just enjoying the holidays.  I took him Christmas shopping. It was one-stop shopping at Jungle Jim’s. We had a great time. Of course this was followed up with Skyline time.
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Years. Be safe.
Thank you, Kathy O’Keefe
