“August of 2014, right after I came back from living in London for ten years, a huge glass door fell on my head.  I was rushed to the hospital.  I had stitches and a severe concussion. I suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury and have been to at least 8 Dr.’s in the past year and a half.

Malteser has brought me great comfort.

After the accident I suffered from depression, anxiety fatigue and a lot of cognitive glitches.

I went to a restaurant recently with a friend and asked if the burgers were good there and my friend reminded me we ate there 2 weeks ago and I liked the burger very much.

Malteser has been turned into a service dog (for emotional support) and I am able to take her with me everywhere I go.

Malti has changed my life in every way.  Her unconditional love is something that is always there, whether I am going through good or bad times.

She is the emotional heart of our home.”
