Kaitlyn's Cause

Kaitlyn was diagnosed with Juvenile Batten Disease in 2013. Batten disease is a rare neurological disease (currently affecting roughly 2 to 4 out of every 100,000 births) that currently has no cure. She will continue to battle this debilitating disease for the rest of her life.  
We are currently raising money for a service dog for Kaitlyn. The red golden retriever (Noah) will have specialized training for nine weeks in an Indianapolis training facility. There he will be trained to alert us to  seizures, falls or any other danger to Kaitlyn.
The expected cost of  this training is $5050.  We appreciate any and all donations towards this cause. God bless!
