A Service Dog for Grace

My name is Grace Parr and I am 11 years old.  I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on Labor Day of 2017.  This means my pancreas no longer works and my body depends on insulin injections.  It is a  very horrifying disease but is even scarier when I am  asleep and do not know if my blood sugar is too low or high.  If my blood sugar is too low I can go into a diabetic coma or even die! I need a diabetic service dog so that it can alert me when my blood sugar is too low or really high. I need a diabetic service dog as soon as possible so I can sleep through the night without worries or even go to sleepovers at my friends houses.

If  I got this dog it could also be like an emotional support dog because I have anxiety. When I get stressed out it effects my blood sugar.   This dog could be my best friend. When I get overwhelmed with my diabetes the dog would always be there to comfort me.  He/She would help me through my life!

My dream is to be an anesthesiologist.  When I go to college I will be by myself.  If I were fortunate enough to have a service dog, it would be able to wake me up at night if I am low. Please help me make my dream come true and give me my future best friend.
