A bond between seven-year-old Zachary Sorrells and his dog, Majesty, has become more than just a friendship. Zachary’s mother, Michelle Sorrells says, “We rely on her 100% for those alerts and it’s imperative that she’s with him 24 hours a day.”
Zachary has epilepsy. He had Majesty since 2013 and his mom says she has helped tremendously by alerting others before Zachary has a seizure. Sorrells explains, “There’s no nurse on this planet who can alert to a seizure before it happens. I’m Zachary’s mama. I’ve watched these seizures happen every day for seven years.”
For the past year the Sorrell’s have been paying $125 a week for the dog’s handler and would like the district to take care of the fee. But Cabot School District, where Zachary is enrolled, says the dog is not necessary to his education.
