Seizure Response Dog for Tristen

A microproject by Chelsea Hutchison Foundation

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.
