Shai, 47, is a Major in the IDF Reserves. He is married for the second time, a father of seven, and grandfather of two. He is forced to cope with trauma as a result of his long-term military service, during which time he held various positions. When he could no longer explain the sights and screams he heard at night, and the bouts of crying to his commanders, Shai recognized the fact that he’d been damaged by his experiences. But he is a fighter. After staying at home for five years and suffering severe attacks, he was forced to leave the house because of his son’s illness. He has since begun his journey toward rehabilitation, helping others who suffer from his condition. Shai is waiting for a service dog to dispel the loneliness and the pain, to alert the people around him when an attack is imminent, to calm him, and to provide companionship and the basic confidence to leave the house again. Please help by donating for Shai’s service dog.
