I just want to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. The story you did on my son was beautiful. In ONE day (the day you aired on 6/2), Sampson received $1,000 in donations towards his service dog. The love and support we have gotten is so overwhelming.  I wanted to share with you a picture of Sampson's service dog, Teddy. He is currently in training now and we hope to have him join our family sometime early next year. Because of the generosity of our community, and the wonderful story Haley did, we are able to make this dream a reality for Sampson. Thank you again (I just received the pictures, so I wanted to share with you all!)

A family in need of service dog for their son with autism is making progress on paying for it--- thanks to a story we featured earlier this month.

Here’s a look at the golden doodle Sampson Morris hopes to get to help him overcome his staring spells, and emotional outbursts.

His name is Teddy and he's currently in training. The Morris family hopes to have him by early next year.

Sampson's mom sent us a message today --- telling us the day this story aired earlier this month, more than $1000 was donated to the cost to help pay for Teddy.

She wanted to thank our viewers for their help.
