Natalia's Seizure Dog

This account was set up by Natalia's mom, When Natalia was born she suffered a brain injury during delivery (hypoxia). The past four years her father and I have been trying to find a solution to help stop the seizures. After many different neurologist and all types of specialist Natalia still suffers every single day. She's on many medications which are very costly and some that insurance does not cover. Natalia very often has seizures in her sleep, the past 4 years we have always had to sleep with her that way when she has a seizure it can wake us up. This account was made for medical needs, medications, therapies and for a service dog we need to get her, this Dog can alert us when she is about to have a seizure, and being that extended seizures kill brain cells that will never come back we are trying to help our child attack this battle every way possible. Natalia has had so many seizures that she currently has many developmental delay in every aspect and still does not speak at the age of 4 and as she grows older that number increases. We need  to continue taking her to different therapies to help her develop she goes to speech therapy, developmental, occupational, and  physical therapy.  Her frustration  levels are always so high and intense because she strives for more than what she can do, she has  potential but we definitely  need help to keep up with medications and therapies and a service dog to save her life. All donations small or large are greatly appreciated and mean the world to us!
