Finnlee needs a Diabetic Alert dog to help him with all the challenges of his Diabetes, and maybe even save his life. Finnlee will be 3 years old in January and is one of the sweetest balls of energy you’ll ever meet. On September 7th 2012 Finnlee was Diagnosed at Children's Hospital in Seattle with Type 1 Diabetes. Having a child diagnosed at such a young age is very difficult and overwhelming for everyone involved in Finnlee's care. Finnlee is behind most children his age with his communication abilities. This means that Finnlee cannot tell us when he doesn’t feel right, be it a low or a high sugar. We check his blood sugar many times throughout the day and night. As you can imagine, keeping up with an almost 3 year old makes it difficult to keep a consistent monitor on his sugars. Nighttime can be the most frightening and stressful part of the day as this is when Finnlee is at his lowest. Low blood sugars can cause seizures, coma or worse.

We are hoping to adopt a Diabetic Alert Dog to help Finnlee and the loved ones close to him keep his sugars under better, more consistent control. A Diabetic Alert Dog WILL be his own personal superhero. The dog will be trained to stay by his side at all times, check Finnlee throughout the night and come wake us to go check him. Studies show that a dog is an amazingly effective tool as it can sense Finnlee’s sugar in real time; helping us avoid the roller-coaster ride that is often associated with diabetics and their sugars. This will add many healthy years to Finnlee's life. We are not just focusing on the challenges of today, we want to use every tool available to keep Finnlee healthy tomorrow. We want to be sure that he too can live a long healthy life, to see his children, grandchildren and to give the world everything that he has to offer.
