Blake Fields was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 5. Everyday he endures multiple finger sticks and insulin shots to manage his disease. With really active children, blood sugars can drop fast resulting in life-threatening situations. It is a constant struggle to keep him within the normal range. Being too high OR too low can lead to diabetic coma. We are trying to raise money for a diabetic alert dog to watch over Blake day to day. The cost is $18,000. That is a lot of money, but you cannot put a price on the safety of your child. We are working with the National Institute for Diabetic Alert Dogs and are absolutely in awe of the success stories of the dogs they have trained. This dog will watch over Blake everywhere and will wake us up at night when it senses a dangerous change in Blake's blood sugar. Anything you can donate to help keep Blake safe and healthy would be greatly appreciated!
