7 year old writes book to pay for service dog
A 7-year-old boy in northern Virginia wrote and illustrated a book in hopes of raising the money his family needs to get him a seizure dog — and signs are he’s going to succeed.
More than 600 people showed up at a book signing over the weekend to meet Evan Moss and buy his book, titled ”My Seizure Dog.”
The Washington Post reported Friday that Moss needed $13,000 to buy a service dog to help him when he suffers seizures.
The book quickly sold out Sunday during a book signing at Grounded Coffee in Alexandria. And a few customers brought their own seizure dogs along for Evan to meet, Evan’s mother, Lisa Moss, said.
About $4,000 worth of the books were sold at $10 apiece, she added, and “My Seizure Dog” is No.1 on Amazon.com’s Bestseller List of Children’s Health books.
Those interested in donating to Evan’s cause can make contributions to: 4 Paws for Ability, Fund for Evan Moss, 253 Dayton Ave., Xenia, Ohio 45385. Checks should be made payable to 4 Paws for Ability.
