By Karen Cohilas - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A disabled Albany man needs your help to pay for a service dog that will help him when he's in danger.
Stephen Muncus began having seizures in 1994. He's now on medication to help prevent them but still has two or three each month.
He's working with an organization called Paws with a Cause to try to get a service dog. They train assistance dogs for people with disabilities, but that training isn't cheap. It costs about $10,000.
A dog can be trained to push life-alerts, get the phone during an emergency, and comfort a person during and after a seizure.
"It will help me because the seizure dog will help me just in case, I have a seizure dog, it will stay beside me until the ambulance gets there," said Muncus.
Applebee's is hosting a fundraiser on August third for Muncus. 15% of your meal from that day will be donated to his cause, if you bring in a flyer specifying the event.
