Damian Duffy

Wellington resident, Damian Duffy lives with Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative muscle condition which impacts his mobility, energy levels and lifespan.

Damian received $3,000 towards obtaining an assistance dog to help him gain more independence, increase confidence and become more active in the community.

Among a number of tasks, the mobility dog will support Damian with every day activities, assist him to stand up and pick up items from the ground and help him socialise by using the dog to break down barriers.
