Elizabeth was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on February 11th 2014. Over a period of 3-4 months had lost close to 25lbs...@ 5' 2" weighing only 74lbs. Weak and tired. ...unable to be active the way she had been, finally realizing that something was seriously wrong we brought her in. The diagnosis was something we did not expect nor were we prepared for. Her life was changed forever so I began researching anything and everything that can make my baby girl's life easier. Her father and I live in a constant fear of the highs and the lows that can bring serious consequences to her long-term health. Elizabeth Is a growing teenager and wants to remain as independent as possible however lives with a constant reminder of this disease. The company Diabetic Alert Dogs of America offers a piece of mind and a sense of stability for anyone who lives with diabetes. Her dog will be able to sense a change in her blood sugar within 15 to 30 points. In the middle of the night while she is sleeping this dog will alert us if her blood sugar is too low it can save her from going into a coma , having seizures and possibly dying. We believe that this was a worthwhile investment in our daughters health, body, her mind and her independence to allow her to find some comfort in this disease. any support that you can give to Our family and to Elizabeth is welcomed. Please do not feel obligated to give anything that would sacrifice money from your family but if you can share this with others and the more you can share it the greater opportunities we have to give this gift to our daughter. If we make our goal Elizabeth will have her new dog a new best friend and a way of staying alive and healthy longer, if we make anything past our goal that money will then be donated back to the same company for another child who may not be able to do what we are trying to do for Elizabeth. The Travis family will be forever indebted to your generosity and your gift thank you.
