In 2010, Sedgwick was paired with a service dog named Lucy, trained through a program called Leader Dogs for the Blind. Lucy was just 15 months old at the time they met, and she and Sedgwick hit it off immediately.
“She came leaping into my arms, licking my face and knocking me out of my chair,” Sedgwick said. “I knew in that moment, with the instantaneous bond between Lucy and I, my journey in life was beginning again.”
Since then, the bond between them has only grown stronger. Sedgwick had lost her vision, but gained a faithful friend.
