Naples Girl Paralyzed in Crash Gets New Best Friend

Naples accident lawyerTo start the New Year, we want to share an uplifting story about a young girl paralyzed in a 2007 Naples car accident. Hannah Grant suffered a traumatic brain injury when a car travelling 55 crashed into her mother’s stopped car.

To make her life easier, Hannah was recently given a service dog named Fosse. "Fosse will be a companion that is just hers, a friend, someone who will help her," her father stated. Grant also stated that he hoped the dog could serve as a buffer between his daughter and the looks she often receives from strangers.

Hannah and Fosse had an instant connection when first meeting one year ago. "You could see a little bit of joy in her eyes," her father stated. "And when we were told that Fosse had the same birthday as Hannah, Feb. 7, we knew."

The dog was provided by PAWS, a local program that trains service dogs for wounded veterans and children with special needs. Fosse can pull a rope to open doors and use his paws to close them. He can also use his nose to turn on a light switch. Most importantly, Fosse can retrieve Hannah's crash kit from beside her wheelchair should she suffer a seizure.
