More info: On May 20, 2015, Coco – the TBI therapy dog for Purple Heart, Afghanistan war veteran @Brien Durkee (Waltham native and son of Bill and Mary Anne Durkee) – was killed in a tragic accident.
Immediately, Clearpath for Veterans, in Chittenango, NY began the search for a new dog to train for Brien. The cost of such a dog is $10,000 (dog and special training). We need help in raising the funds.
