I am trying to raise funds to help support Harrigan, my Diabetic Alert Dog.  He has a big job to do and works very hard at it.  Unfortunatly it comes with a big price tag and insurence does not supplement any of it. I am asking for your help in raising funds so that I can continue to benefit from Harrigan's work. Please read below to see just what he  can do.

This little guy has made some pretty amazing saves by alerting me to drops in sugar and preventing me from having serious complications.

Just this weekend, Harrigan alerted me to a sugar in a normal range of 107.  When I checked to see how much insulin I still had in my system, I still had 9 units of insulin.  This amount would have dropped my sugar extremely low.  Since I was getting ready to go to bed, I would have dropped in my sleep and possibly not ahve woken up.  Because he alerted me, I ate a snack and my sugar stayed steady throught the night. 

On another evening, I checked an my sugar was running high.  I took insulin and went on with dinner.  Harrigan continued to alert me and became very distressed.  I checked and my sugar ahd gone up by 50 points.  A little later it was up to over 300, even after taking mulitple insulin doses.  It turned out that the tubing for my pump was blocked. If Harrigan had not kept alerting me, I would have assumed hte insulin was working and not checked the pump, which could have resulted in severe highs and ketones.

He gives me alerts daily  and I am forever greatful to this little guy. The only difficult part is the fact that he comes with a very high price tag that insurence will not cover.  I have set up this site to help raise funds to offset the cost of purchasing a diabetic alert dog.  Please consdier making a donation.  All donation will go to the Warren Retrievers Service Dogs.

 

I also have a website that tells more about Harrigan and what he is up to.  Check it out at www.harriganthehero.org

 

Thanks everyone!!
