Emily's fund for a seizure dog

Around the time I was 13-years-old I began to have seizures along with chronic migraines that began when I was 6 after a head injury. I missed alot of school, struggled to stay caught up, and was in and out of hospitals most of my childhood and teenage years. I've had countless doctors, tests, and medications in an effort to try to control these migraines and seizures. This last episode of illness was pretty rough for both my sister and I. I was forced to withdraw from work and school and my sister amazingly took on all the living expenses and bills for both of us. While I am slowly getting back on my feet again I still have a long way to go this time and one of those steps is going to be getting a seizure dog to be with me because I cant be accompanied everywhere I go. Having a seizure dog will make it possible for me to get help if I were to collapse while I was alone, for me to gain a higher level of independence, and even alert me and those around me before I have a seizure.  The cost of getting this dog will be $1700. The next litter will be born in December and be able to come home in February, meaning February is when payment will be due. We are asking for any and all help you can give. We appreciate everyones support.
