I had to delete some offline donations, I got excited in the beginning and when people told me they were making a donation, I went ahead and added an offline donation. I should have waited until I had the money in my hand!!! We live and learn! Thank you all so much for your support, prayers, and donations! We are going to continue to work hard to get Tank for JJ!
We are still working on getting JJ's dog! We will get there, no doubt in my mind!

Hi! I am Allyson, mother of JJ, Logan, and Tommy! Wife of an amazing Husband serving in the Air Force. Last year in November when my husband Joe was away on temporary duty for 6 weeks, just 2 days into his absence, I had taken JJ to the doctor because he had started wetting the bed again, and was SUPER thirsty EVERY night, to the point he would sneak water. His blood sugar when I took him in was 257. Having no idea what that even meant, or what normal levels were, I sat in the patient room, listening to all of the sounds outside the door. I heard the doctor call the ER at Children's Hospital in Phoenix, she told them his levels and that they needed a spot in the PICU because he was probably in diabetic keto-acidosis. (Still all of these words were foreign to me) At the time, I was blessed enough to have my mother there (she was visiting for a week) and my friend Julie, My mother lives in Oklahoma, and it was her FIRST visit to our home in Arizona. She had no clue how to get back and forth from the hospital to the house, but Julie came and got her, brought her to the hospital and took her home. She stayed with me as much as she could and we were in Children's Hospital for 5 days. This journey so far has been very tedious. Joe and I wake up sometimes several times a night checking blood sugar and keeping an eye on JJ. I am always worried about lows or highs at night and something happening to my son in his sleep. Having a DAD (Diabetic Alert Dog) would help us sleep at night, knowing the dog would alert us if there were a significant change in JJ's numbers.
This site is to help a 7 yr old boy with juvenile diabetes obtain a much needed Alert dog. Diabetic Alert Assistance Dogs are a specific type of Medical Assistance Dog that have been trained to use their highly sensitive scent capabilities to identify the changes in blood chemistry that occur during rapid changes in blood sugar levels.
As a nurse, I can relate to your need for JJ to have this opportunity. And my husband served in the Army for many years also. Thank you for serving and thank you for reaching out to the community for support. God Bless you .
