Hello my name is Jennifer.I am the one in the middle of everyone in the group picture! I was diagnosed as a  Diabetic about 4 years a go. I was in the Er. and they were running tests on me. We had been there for several hours. The Dr. came in and asked me if I had ever been diagnosed as a Diabetic. She said my sugar level was over 300 and it was probably about 600 when I had come in. I felt this awful sinking feeling . I had to change every thing, My diet and exercise. I just felt like there was nothing I could do any more and slipped into a terrible depression.

I am Now on several meds. I take them for Diabetes,PCOS stands for ( Polly cystic ovarian syndrome), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression, low iron, low B-12, acid re-flux, allergies... I feel like my bathroom has become a drug store. haha!

 I came across " Diabetic Alert Dogs by Warren Retrievers " on facebook and thought I would look into it. My Husband worries constantly about me. I wake up most days just sick and I can not hold my food down.So I decided to bring this to him and he thought it would be a great idea. I knew we could not do it on our own but with help this would be something that would give us both peace of mind. I have had Cellulitious twice now and it damaged the lymph vessels in my leg called "Lymphedema". so it constantly swells.

 Being able to have a Diabetic Alert Dog (DAD) would be a blessing for us. They can detect sugar spikes before they are to high and before a meter can detect it. This Nana wants to be around long enough to watch her grand kids grow up. It's a long journey but with a Diabetic Alert dog from Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers. Life will be a bit easier. We could never make this possable without your help. It's a lot of money to raise and not easy to do. Please consider helping us. There is no cure ... but there is a dog!  Thanks in advance for all your help and thanks to Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers for all you do.

( Update )

This journey has not been an easy one.. and trying to keep my hopes up is not so easy. I know I am not a child. But that doesnt make me at any less risk of death then anyone else. All I do know is that this wont be possable without help! I am on my own here for the most part. there is NO cure for Diabeties, even with diet and excersize..
