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!
