It was always part of our plan to get Lauren either a service or companion dog when she went to college. She is a loner and the comfort our dog Sadie has brought Lauren in these days is a hard thing to measure. We have concerns for her being alone in the dorm and she ceases to breathe. Another fear that has happened twice and she has nightmares about is her central line coming detached and waking up in blood without her realizing it. The wait list for a dog is years. We have found a trainer and possible dog and need to raise funds for this so she can start college in the fall. A dog that alerts if she stops breathing or is bleeding takes very specialized training. We have been turned down by every major or national organization.
I thank you for listening to an emotional request from a mother trying to give her daughter the best chance of success at being all she dreams of being. And who knows ….. wouldn’t be the first time my family was up against overwhelming odds .I refuse to accept that Lauren doesn't deserve the same kind of miracle.
