No longer fighting just to survive one more day, this is Hailey's chance at living with a monster called Dravet. After 15 awful years of non-stop seizures, we received correct diagnosis in 2010. Now Hailey HAS a "quality of life!"  She is beginning to live for the first time ever: attending school, playing at recess, swimming, visiting friends - even shopping sometimes if we can manage it. 

Now we need another miracle, a service dog to help me keep Hailey safe. She still has a lot of seizures and profound developmental delays. Danger is everywhere and Hailey doesn't understand one bit. She has no concept of fear, cannot communicate emergency information if lost, tries to escape our house often, will walk into streets, pools or simply bolt without a care. A service dog is trained to help keep Hailey safe. It can alert us to seizures, often before they strike, stopping Hailey from seizing in places like streets. A Seizure Alert Service Dog can also be "teathered" to Hailey: a short line attached to her dog's harness while I hold a longer leash. Hailey would no longer be able to run into streets, pools or simply bolt awayfrom me - her dog would be right there at her side. I can only imagine the freedom we might enjoy if we had a dog instead of wheelchair to go places and have fun. Amazingly, there's more: if Hailey bolts, if she does get lost, her dog is trained to find her by scent and bring her back! I cannot imagine any of this without crying, we've been so limited for so long. I am a single mom, alone in our day to day tasks. Hailey requires every ounce of all of me just to get by. Now Hailey is able to live not just fight to survive and I am unable let her live and have fun, I am unable to do all of this alone. This is the miracle, the hero we need - a Service Dog to help Hailey to live and succed.

Thank you for reading our story and for helping us bring home a hero for Hailey.
