Troy Anthony Spence — Emerging Hero

Charity Partner: Pets for Patriots
Location: Tucson, Arizona

I was hit by a hit and run driver while troy and I were walking across the street. When I got hit the car threw me ten feet in the air and I landed almost in oncoming traffic. Troy walked around me to protect me from getting hit again. It was 9pm at night so you couldn’t see me laying on the ground.Troy stayed with me until the paramedics came.The accident shattered my shoulder and I had to get a metal rod to replace my arm bone. I suffer from ptsd, anxiety, and depression and troy has been there for me through all of this. If it wasn’t for troy who knows if I’d still be here.He is my hero and I love him so much. I’m going to make him my service dog. He makes everyday worth living.He comforts me when I’m sad and knows when I’m having a bad day. He covers me with kisses!He is my hero!
