Diabetes Alert Dog (D.A.D.) for William Frech
Organized by: LINDA TAGG
Will is a 13 year old boy who lost his dad in a drowning accident 11 months ago. Last month he was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes. Will is one of the few that show no signs that his blood sugar is dropping or in a low range. We have opted to add another layer of security by using a diabetes alert dog to alert him that his sugar level is low. This could mean the difference of getting him help before he goes into a diabetic coma. We have search the internet and any resources we can find and found that most dogs are between $14,000 - $15,000.00. Then traveling to pick up the dog and spend 1 week training Will and the dog together. Will understands his daily responsibility for any dog he receives. His mother is also willing to take on the daily expenses for a dog.
