Hello Sweet Family and Friends!

As most of you know, our dear 11 year old daughter Rylee was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes on April 27th, 2014 and our lives were forever changed. I have dealt with this disease for almost 33 years now (diagnosed when I was 7 years old) and I know the challenges associated with diabetes are difficult and low blood sugars are the scariest moments of all. But I also know that with God, all things are possible! We are putting our trust in him and have faith that we can weather this storm together as a family and we know God will provide for our needs! :)

We recently met with an incredible dog trainer, Mike C. at Pro-Train, who is able to train dogs to become diabetic service dogs. The dog would be trained to detect low blood sugar on Rylee's (and my own) breath before it drops dangerously low. These dogs are absolutely amazing in what they are able to do! We believe this dog would help Rylee, and also help me when we are unable to detect a low blood sugar coming on, and in turn, save our lives. The dog will cost $13,000 and it takes 3 months to train the dog. We are looking into getting a chocolate lab and we are excited to add this very important member into the Harness Family!

This is where we need your help! We hate imposing on anyone, but we know that with the loving help of our friends, family members, and even perfect strangers, we can accomplish this fundraising goal to get a service dog for our girl!

Please know that we appreciate your help so very much! Any amount will help us reach our goal. Please know that we also appreciate your prayers and we feel extremely blessed to have such a loving and caring support system in our corner.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help! We love you and we thank you!

~Mike, Keri, Rylee, Zach and Colby Harness :)
