Gabe & Izzy is the moving true story of the young woman whose bond with her dog, Izzy,
changed her life.
In middle school,
Gabrielle “Gabe” Ford developed a degenerative muscle disease and was harassed
by bullies as a result. She did her best to keep her head high, but it wasn’t
easy. Then Gabe got a dog she named Izzy, who developed an uncannily similar
disorder. They were invited to appear on Animal Planet to talk about their
bond, which in turn led to an invitation to speak at a school. And so began
Gabe’s career as an antibullying advocate.
Dubbed “The Voice of
America’s Bullied” by the Huffington Post,
Gabe now makes a career of public speaking and has received numerous honors for
her hard work. This is her amazing story—from her lowest days dealing with
various challenges to the unbelievable and immediate bond with Izzy to her
ongoing mission to put an end to bullying, one school at a time. Download and start listening now!
