Meet Amelia Grace...
In 2018 Amelia’s older brother suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury after being struck by a car while walking home from a friend's house. During his recovery, Amelia got to see firsthand the struggles he and his family went through. After witnessing the strong progressions he made with the help of a pet that his parents gave to him, Amelia started to work with an organization called K-9 for Warriors. This organization provides canines for veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Being involved with this organization's Veteran’s Day telethon, Amelia and other volunteers helped raise over $372,000 for this project.
Amelia has also been the recipient of The Presidental Volunteer Service Award, an Ambassador for K9s for Warriors and a DUKE TIP member.
