~ Unite for Diabetes Today ~
It is an honor for us to be working with Olivia and her family to raise awareness for Type 1 Diabetes and to bring home a Diabetic Alert Dog (DAD) for her.
Olivia is 8 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 2 years ago. This means that her body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. Since Olivia does not have this hormone she has to measure the amount of food she eats to determine how much insulin she needs at every meal or snack. This means she is poked multiple times a day to test her blood sugar. Sometimes her blood sugar goes low or high and she realizes it herself because she starts to feel weird and dizzy. She is doing a great job but getting her a Diabetic Alert Dog will give the family an extra set of hands…or should I say nose…to alert them when her blood sugar is out of line.
For Olivia, getting her Diabetic Alert Dog will help her sleep more soundly at night knowing that she has another friend who is there for her and will get help.
How can you help? Purchase a diabetic alert dog window cling for $5 and $4.40 goes to Olivia for her Diabetic Alert Dog. Also, shop with us from now thru June 15th, 2014, tell us that "Olivia sent you" and 10% of your purchase is donated to her too!
Thank you so much for your support!
