Jaxon is a legendary, cheeky five-year-old who was born severely deaf and lives with autism.
He’s non-verbal with sensory processing issues and has trouble communicating.
Thankfully there’s an amazing Melbourne-based not-for-profit called ‘Dogs For Kids With Disabilities’ that specialises in providing training assistance dogs for children with autism.
The pups will be Jaxon’s ears, allowing him to stay safe, give him some independence, and provide reassurance in difficult times for Jaxon by ‘hugging’ him.
Jaxon’s dad Matthew is on the frontline as a volunteer firefighter and one of his colleagues Robyn emailed Christian asking for help to raise the money the family needs.
Matthew and his wife Donna have raised $7000 of the $10,000 needed for their son, so we’re calling on Melbourne to help realise their dream!
