Jenna-Mae's Diabetic Alert Dog

Jenna-Mae's Diabetic Alert Dog

Personal message

 

Donate Via Snapscan

Jenna-Mae was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 1 in September 2021 at just 2 years old. Type 1 is not diet or lifestyle-related. 

Diabetes Type 1 is auto-immune and Jenna-Mae is insulin-dependant. She is still in the "honeymoon phase" so her levels are still quite up & down and all over the show. And, because she is so little, it is also hard for her to communicate to us, how she is doing and feeling.

ENTER... Diabetic Alert Dog! The Hero of the Day! A "DAD" (diabetic alert dog) can detect a high or low, using their keen sense of smell, up to 20 minutes before devices can! How cool is that! 

Nothing is as scary as sleeping at night, hoping & praying she won't go low, fall into a coma, and you won't hear your alarm for her nightly midnight, 2am and 4am checks. Or, when you drive back from the shops (just 5 minutes) and you reach home to an unresponsive, unreactive child in the back seat... even though you checked her 5 minutes ago... you shake her, scream at her to wake up and try to shove something sugary in her mouth without choking her... not cool mense, not cool.

So, please help us, to help Miss Mae. This "DAD" will be part of our family, part of our team, and also a friend to our little sunshine. 

If you have any questions or would like more info, feel free to contact us and we would be glad to respond when we can. The wonderful people raising our "DAD" is Honey's Guide Dogs- a registered, legit organisation.
And that basically sums it up!

We know we are on this journey for a reason. We know we have the love and backing of God our Father. And we believe we can do this, with your help.

Blessings, Love and Hugs
The van der Vyver family xx

*As per the campaign creator, all funds raised will be paid directly for "DAD" to Honey's Guide Dogs.*

If the fundraising campaign exceeds its target, the family will use any additional funds to purchase Freestyle Libre sensor devices, which will be able to read Jenna-Mae’s sugar levels more accurately and less painfully, while she waits for her pup. These devices cost R1000 and last up to 14 days.
