First, I, Danny Pettry, am asking you to make a small $25.00 donation to the Jaycee Dugard Trust Fund.
By sending a check:
Jaycee Lee Dugard Trust Fund c/o Viewtech P O Box 596 Atwood, CA 92811
Or by paypal:
Jacyee Dugard had been kidnapped for 18-years. Jacyee’s abuser had fathered her two daughters: Angel (15) and Starlet (11).
Today, I read on Yahoo News that a therapist is using horse-back riding for Jaycee and her two daughters to help reintegrate them back into society. I'm very interested in learning more.
I’m aware that recreational therapists use horses for therapy a.k.a.“hippo therapy” in rehab to systematically help a person to gain mobility, balance, and posture. In general people are excited and enthusiastic about this recreational approach. However, it is obvious that it can be used in mental health for different goals.
Jacyee Dugard (age 29 now) is featured on the cover of the current People magazine. There is a 10-page article about her. I’m going to read it. I have a lot of empathy for Jaycee and her two children. I wish them the best and hope for them to have a happy and successful future.
As a recreational therapist, I provide services for children (ages 8 to 12) who’ve been abused at a residential treatment facility in one of the two Virginias. So, naturally, I'm interested in learning more.
