While serving in the U.S. Army, Cpl. David Medina was wounded in combat, leaving him with life-altering injuries, including hearing loss and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Canine Companions Service Dog Kellen has transformed David’s ability to connect with the world around him, as he’s specifically trained to mitigate symptoms of PTSD, with tasks like anxiety interruption and creating a buffer in crowds.

Because of their partnership, David can focus his energy on activities he wants to do, instead of worrying about what he can’t do. He’s able to dedicate himself to making meaningful memories with his family and taking up kayaking again –all thanks to Kellen.
