The Story



It’s terrifying when you hear that your child has Type 1 Diabetes.
My name is Stefanie Huff. I’m married to Craig and the mother of 4. My twins were diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when they were 5 years old. Diabetes can change from moment to moment. Lots of sleepless nights, ER visits, hospital stays. It’s been a “new kind of normal for our family.” A Diabetic Alert Dog will change our lives. She will be trained to alert when there is a change in blood sugar in both boys. And then come to me. Amazing, isn’t it?
These dogs don’t just change lives. They SAVE lives.

Sometimes one of our boys has a high blood sugar level and the other other has a blood sugar drop at the same time. Checking on the boys several times a night is like having newborns in the house again. I’m not complaining. They are blessings. And I’m determined to keep my boys safe and healthy.

It’s not all about us and our family. Everyone has their own struggles. As I sit here and reflect on 2013... some of us had a good, sad, bad, ugly year. We all had our ups and downs. God never promised tomorrow. But we are all still here to talk about another day, another year. The way I see it... life is a roller coaster ride. Up. Down. Side to Side. Upside Down. And a Lesson in it all. I thank God for it. I’ve learned to not worry about the small things. Enjoy life. Live life to the fullest. It’s a gift. Have fun every day for another day.

It’s hard to ask for help. But I know that a dog will change the lives of our boys and also be an ambassador for others who need service dogs for whatever challenges they face. The organization we’ve found is Dreys Alert Dogs. a 501C3 non-profit organization. The cost of the Diabetic Alert Dog is $30,000.00. We’re hard workers, but that’s too much for our family to manage.Your gifts are tax deductible.

Thank you for giving whatever is on your heart to give. And if you can’t give, say a prayer for us. When your family needs help, call on us. Raising our children takes all of us.

I love you all.

Cameron's a1c went way up to 9.6 and he didn't grow or gain weight so they are concerned and about his growth and want to do some testing so we will be doing all of that this week before we go back to school.
