The Story

I have a little friend whose name is GG. He is 3 years old  and loves superheroes, gatorade, and his little sisters. He needs a diabetic alert dog, but they cost $15,000. Please help raise funds so can get one!

From GG's mom: 

Hey!! My name is Jackie and my son Grant, everyone calls him GG was diagnosed in November at 3 years old with Type 1 diabetes.  He is insulin dependent and will always have to have insulin for the rest of his life. Type 1 is an autoimmune disease when his body attacked his pancreas and killed off the cells that make insulin.  With his age he is completely hypo and hyper unaware.  This means he has no idea when he is dangerously low or high.  For instance he was 37, this is seizure worthy, the other day and had no idea.  He is such a little warrior.  He gets up to 12 finger sticks a day to monitor his sugar. He is also on a pump now and gets his site changed every three days.  He takes everything like a champ.  Our hope is to get him a diabetic alert dog for his safety! He NEEDS this dog it is not want.  These dogs alert as he is dropping so we can catch it before it makes him sick or worse.  He will start Kindergarten in 2 years and our goal is for him to have his dog before then!! I can't even imagine as a mother sending him to school without this for his safety! He can be riding perfect at 120 and 5 min be 60!! We are on a mission and our asking for people to help us get my little warrior his sidekick!

It was a tough week for GG! He battled many lows in the 30s and 40s! So scary as a mother! He also had two failed sensors which means more pokes for my sweet boy.  He never missed a beat though he smiles, sits through it, and gets up and continues on his way! I want to thank each and everyone of you that donated through the auction! Even all that shared his post to get the word out! My family appreciates everyone who took the time to think of GG!! I know we have a journey ahead of us to raise the money but we will get there! I know we can!!

Just wanted to tell you all a little more about my sweet sweet boy!! He loves to play outside and get dirty and be rough and tumble! He loves transformers, all super heros although Captain America is his favorite, cars, sword fighting with his brother, wrestling, baseball, and riding in his power wheel to name a few! He has the biggest personality, enough for about 10 boys!! His smile can light up a whole room!! If you know GG then you know his love for tall socks, you won't see him without his shorts on and tall socks.  He is a great brother to his two sisters and brother! He loves to sing and dance and just love loves life!! He is fighting a big battle every day but you would never know, he doesn't let  get him down, he always finds a way and pushes through!!
