Alert Dog for Kayden

CISCO -- Eight year old Kayden needs your help to get a new dog to detect when her sugar level is off balance.

She was diagnosed with type one diabetes in September and has since stopped going to public school because of her health issues.

Accurate 85 to 95 percent of the time, a diabetes alert dog would sniff out when Kayden's sugar is too high or too low, when Kayden herself can't feel the fluctuations in her body.

The family needs twenty thousand dollars and has raised over five hundred dollars so far.

The money has been raised through an online fundraiser that mom, Chantay, started.

The family plans to hold some events once the weather improves.
