Allison is an insulin dependent, Type 1 Diabetic who is  in the process of getting a Diabetic Alert Dog (DAD) to help her with her dangerous high and low blood sugar levels.  Her dog, Wrenn, is currently in training with a company called Diabetic Alert Dogs of America. This company specializes in training these amazing dogs- who can smell the chemical emitted by her body when her blood sugar is out of range. When the dog smells that her sugar is out of range, he is trained to "alert" her by pawing at her arm gently to alert her that she is trending into a danger zone with her sugar level and that she should immediately stop and test her sugar.
Once she confirms that her level is out of range, she can take the necessary steps of treating with insulin or sugar before the syptoms get too severe. 

A sugar level that is too high can cause extreme thirst, frequent urination, blurred vision, headaches, difficulty concentrating, exhaustion, restlessness and  irritability. 
A sugar level that is too low can cause shakiness, confusion, sweating, slurred speach, emotional instability (anger and crying), naesea and siezures.
If untreated, both highs and lows can lead to siezures, stroke, coma or death. Long term fluctations in the levels can lead to vision loss, nerve damage, kidney failure, etc.

Please help Allison in securing the funds to pay for this lifesaving medical device!
