QUEST Vol. 14, No. 1
Jimmy Blando of Port St. Lucie, Fla., who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, is one of the lucky few who've gotten to make friends with a dolphin. In the fall of 2005, when he was 14, Jimmy and his family participated in the dolphin therapy program offered by Island Dolphin Care (IDC) on Key Largo, Fla. Sarah, Jimmy's dolphin, seemed to take an instant liking to him, said his mom, Tina.
