Help Courtney get a Medical Alert Dog

Hello everyone, my name is Courtney and I am a junior in high school. I suffer from chronic migraines and have my whole life. They are extremely debilitating with the side effects of vertigo, nausea, vomiting, tunnel vision, blurred vision, fatigue, and most notably severe pulsating/throbbing pain all over my body from my head. They can last anywhere from 2 hours to 2 weeks. During a migraine, pain killers do not ease the pain due to how strong the migraine is. If I had a medical alert dog to alert me before a migraine (like a seizure alert dog) then I could take preventative medicine to stop it before it starts. Our problem is money, as service dogs are medical equipment and are not cheap. $20,000 seems like a lot of money to spend on a dog but with this money, I would be able to live my life to the fullest without disconnecting myself from the world 2-5 times a week. This money will go towards the following purchases: - The dog itself - The training - The travel fee (if necessary) - Other dog supplies like vests, food, a bed, etc... I would be incredibly grateful to receive donations. This would really turn my life around for the better and let me live a normal teenage life. If you do not have much to give, every penny counts. I would be just as grateful for 1¢ as I would for $100.
