About

Clearwater Beach resident, Austin J. Spedale, a newlywed, is conducting a fundraiser for a service dog for his wife, Courtney, through gofundme.com. For over the past ten years, Courtney has been suffering from back pain and limited mobility. She was recently diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy and lumbar disc radiculitis. This prevents her from bending down and picking up items at low levels and average everyday tasks.  Not a candidate for surgery, Courtney’s orthopedic recommended she get a service dog to help regain her mobility and independence.
