Seizure-Response Dog for Tiffany

Feb 10, 2014

Update from The Chelsea Hutchison Foundaiton


Thank you for donating to this project.  Element is still in training for Tiffany, but should be fully-trained and working for Tiffany in the next few months.

Tiffany is a beautiful teenager who, unfortunately, remains fairly unstable with her seizures after her VNS surgery of a few months ago. Epilepsy is so frustrating for everyone involved.  Medication only successfully controls about 20% of those who suffer with seizures.  It is hard to watch such an amazing young woman be held back by her seizures.  Element will allow her some independence and be able to recognize her seizures and respond accordingly.  Her family will also be a little more at ease, knowing Tiffany will have a trained companion with her at all times.

Thank you again for making a difference in Tiffany's life.  You can follow her story and other's like her on our facebook page which is
