SGT. Adam Campbell, USA (ret.)

My name is Adam Campbell. I was severely injured in 2009 in Iraq. I suffer from (Diagnosed) PTSD, TBI, as well as physical injury. KENAN is my best excuse to wake up and get out of bed in the morning. KENAN does not demean, ridicule, or judge me in anyway. When looking into his eyes, the only thing he wants is my love and attention (and for me to throw a ball).

KENAN helps me control and mitigate my PTSD by grounding me. The feel of his fur or his nose on my hands help me to stay present in the moment and not allow my mind to wonder into a negative space. KENAN also alerts me to the onset of memories of moral trauma, war trauma, physical trauma, depression, as well as anger.

KENAN helps me physically when my body does not work the way it should. The bond that KENAN and I have, gives him the ability to know what is going on in my head and body without saying a word. KENAN reaches me behind closed doors, where a phone call couldn’t reach.
