Thank you, thank you, thank you, for contributing to a "Seizure-Response Dog for Tristen".  I am happy to report that Sam is fully-trained and is working hard for Tristen.  The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation provided a grant to help make this happen and without your help and others like you, this would not be possible.

Tristen's family reports that Sam is a huge asset to their family in a effort to keep Tristen safe.  Tristen also has a serious heart condition thats ongoing which makes him at a high risk of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). Sam allows Tristen a little more independence and gives his family a little more peace knowing Sam is with him always.

To date, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation has provided 55 grants for seizure-response dogs across the United States.  By donating to this project, you have helped us grant comfort and hope to Tristen and his family.

Seizure-Response Dogs for those with Epilepsy
Epilepsy will affect 1 in 26 Americans at some point in their lives, and an estimated one-third of epilepsy-related deaths in children are due to SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). With awareness, preventative measures can be taken. Help The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation provide grants for trained seizure response dogs, allowing children with epilepsy and their families the comfort of knowing their health will be monitored at all times, and the possibility of preventing SUDEP. project reportread updates from the field
