surfing dog makes wish come truw-KillerImageDotComThanks to a surfing dog named Ricochet, a sick boy was able to feel like a normal kid again. Caleb lost the feeling in his lower body last July just weeks after he was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.

The certified therapy dog famous for her surfing skills, joined the Make-A-Wish Foundation to fulfill Caleb Acosta’s request for a day in the waves with the four-legged star.

“It was life-changing,” Caleb’s mom, Cathy Acosta, told Good Morning America. “He said he felt light. He felt free. He felt like he was normal again.”

The dog is said to be the “only dog in the world who surfs with kids with special needs, people with disabilities, wounded warriors, military families and veterans with PTSD.”

  2. Caleb, there is a buddhist Technique called Mindfulness, that essentially Works by living in the present momento fully all of the time, just as you did when you were surfing, that has worked with people with cáncer to live much, much more tan was projected. There was a case of a Young man who was given 3 months to live and, with mindfulness, he was able to live for 15 years. If you want to learn how to practice mindfulness please read “You are Here now” by Thich Nhat Hanh, or “the Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle.

    If you need help with mindfulness I can help you do that, free of charge, as I give mindfulness classes. We can speak over the telephone If you like. Send me an email at [email protected]
