GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Supporters of Aimee Copeland fell short of their goal to raise money for her service dog this weekend.

Organizers said they raised nearly $1,000 less than the cost of the weekend event for Copeland's dog.

Copeland lost her limbs last year after battling a flesh-eating bacteria.

Supporters had hoped proceeds for this weekend's fundraiser would cover veterinarian, food and maintenance bills for her special needs dog.
