We NEED Your Help: Help Addysen Get a Diabetic Dog

This story was brought to my attention by one of my amazing and beautiful followers, huge thank you to Linda Smith for sharing Addysen’s story with me. I will be totally honest, I became a little emotional while reading Addysen’s story, I started tearing up, my heart goes out to her and her family. Her story has really touched me and I think her story will move you too…please read & share!!


Addysen was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 4. Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone people need to get energy from food. T1D strikes both children and adults at any age and suddenly. Millions of Americans are affected by type 1.  She is now 8, and has been dealing with diabetes every day for four years!  That is four years of finger sticks 8-15 times a day, scary low blood sugars that pop up at the most inconvenient times, nasty highs and 2 AM blood sugar checks.  As Addysen has gotten older, she has become more anxious and concerned about her diabetes but there is some hope!

Diabetic Alert Dogs are trained to alert diabetic handlers in advance of low (hypoglycemia) or high (hyperglycemia) blood sugar events before they become dangerous. The Diabetic Alert Dog’s early detection allows the handler to take the proper steps to return their blood sugar to a normal healthy range. Diabetic Alert Dogs of America services individuals of all ages and families affected by Diabetes throughout the entire United States. http://www.diabeticalertdogsofamerica.com/

Diabetic Alert dogs provide life-saving alerts to low and high blood sugar. Diabetic Alert Dogs save lives! A diabetic alert dog will give Addysen peace of mind, security and confidence.  She will be safe with a diabetic alert dog by her side. 

A Diabetic Alert Dogs will give her confidence and much needed independence as she grows! Will you help Addysen obtain her diabetic alert dog by making a donation?
