Hi! My name is Gavin! I am 4 years old and I’ll be 5 on January 24th! I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 3 years old in march 1st 2015. I was very sick, drinking, going to the bathroom a lot, not eating, and losing weight. My mom and dad knew something want right and took me to the ER. That is when they told us that I was diabetic and my sugar was over 1000!
We were so scared not knowing anything but we learned everything before we could leave the hospital. I am insulin dependent and will not grow out of it. I started off doing shots and I check my blood sugar often, before every meal and sometimes in the middle of the night. In September 2015 i started pumping. Sometimes I can’t feel when my blood sugars are high or low. My family is starting this new journey in hopes to get a Diabetic Alert Dog that can sense, smell, and alert us when I my blood sugars are dropping low or going too high. We’re asking for all your help to share and help donate to make this possible for us.
Thank you so much!
