Leon Tolhurst

Patient Leader

I am a 15 year old year old aspiring disability activist! I mostly focus on spreading awareness for service animals and the wide variety of disorders and conditions they can help with. I have a medical alert/response service dog named Sunshine who is the real star here! I also advocate for children and adolescents who are often told that their problems are not valid due to their age. "You're too young to be disabled" is something I hear quite often when out and about with my service dog. I want to show the world that disabled people don't have to strive for "average." We can strive for extraordinary instead.
