This is Olivia Durvin aka Livi!! She is a sweet and loving 4 year old with special needs ❤️


raised by 82 people

$20,000 goal

This is Olivia aka Livi!!  She is 4 years old and lives in Mechanicsville. She is mostly happy, sweet and loving!  Livi was diagnosed with Autism at 2 years old and had to have brain surgery 6 months later that prompted genetic testing!  With those results she was diagnosed with Phelan McDermid Syndrome...PMS for short. Livi is nonverbal (no words, no sign language, no comprehensive language), intellectually delayed, has hypotonia (low muscle tone), oral sensory seeking disorder (puts EVERYTHING in her mouth) and a sleep disorder to name a few. We are raising money to get her a service dog!!  A service dog will tether to her keeping her from running off, will alert us when she's in danger, knows just how much pressure to put on her when she is sensory seeking or overstimulated and hopefully help her at night by giving her the best cuddles!  Because of everything that goes into raising and training a service dog the fee is $20k!  We're hoping our community can help out any way they can and help this dream become a reality.
