Averys Seizure Dog Fundraiser

Organized by: Katie Finger

Our 12 year old daughter, Avery, has been batteling epilepsy since birth. She has multiple seizures a day and we have tried many things in attempt to better control them. They have taken away her independence!
She has tried just about every medication and is currently on 3 different meds now. We have tried the ketogenic diet which seemed to make her worse, we tried the VNS which had to be taken out a month later because she got MRSA, and we have tried CBD medical marijuana. We havent had success with any. There is not much left to try.
Avery has split her head multiple times and split her chin because of seizures. We fear for her every second. She nows wears a helmet to protect her head every day unless sleeping. Even then, if we arent going to be able to have our eyes on her she has to sit and scoot around on her bottom. No child should be so limited!
Avery has been approved for a seizure dog. Now it is just a matter of raising the funds to get one. She is so excited and wants a seizure dog so much. At her interview she started out being quiet and shy with her head down. Then, when she got to walk one of the dogs around she had the biggest grin on her face and so much confidence.
This dog will give her so much independence, keep her safe, alert us of a seizures and give us piece of mind. She will have a best friend!
Please help us make this happen for our Avery and change her world!
