Hey there! We are the RENTZ’S! Jamie, Phillip and Mikaylah. Mikaylah is a smart, fun loving, beautiful, outgoing 15 year old teenage girl!
She loves fishing, horses, hunting, her dogs, riding buggies and really just anything to do with the outdoors. Unfortunately, she struggles doing the things she loves to do because of epilepsy and the seizures it causes.
Mikaylah has had absence & clonic tonic (grand mal) seizures for years and at the age of 6 is when she was first diagnosed. Mikaylah continues to struggle daily and lives in fear for when the next one will hit. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to send Mikaylah’s dog Indie to become her service dog. She will be trained for a seizure alert dog. She will be able to alert Mikaylah BEFORE she seizes so she will be able to lay down safely and not fall. Mikaylah is a freshman in high school and has plans to attend college to further her education to become an RN. Indie will give Mikaylah the sense of relief and a peace of mind to fulfill her dreams without as much fear of the seizures anymore. Mikaylah has Fallen, banged her face, and stopped breathing so Indie having training will be able to provide a feeling of safety and security for Mikaylah to live a normal life as possible.
Indie’s job will include no more falling, be able to get help, alerting mikaylah before a seizure, staying with her during a seizure, keeping her safe from start to finish.
Our goal is to raise 10,000$ which will include all of Indies training, monthly visits for mikaylah and Indie to have one on one training with the trainer. This will go on for 6 months to a year depending on Indie. A huge thank you for taking the time to read this! Loves of love from Indie, Mikaylah and family
