The event is designed to support the charity’s work with children who have type 1 diabetes, and who are not aware when their blood sugar quickly drops to dangerously low levels. This hypoglycemic unawareness can lead to serious consequences.
Sweet Charity Diabetes Alert Dogs (DADs) are trained by our professional team to alert the child when detecting falling blood sugar levels avoiding the risk of a seizure or coma.
The families who are supported by these amazing dogs experience the life-changing freedom of allowing their child to live without constant monitoring. The parents of these children do not sleep through the night due the need to check their child’s blood sugar levels. The DAD provides reassurance through alerting the child or the parent.
Your support will help children in need, supporting the special and lengthy puppy training, easing the financial burden of the recipient families.
