Smart Pup for Mackenzie

Smart Pup for Mackenzie

At 18 months old Mackenzie was unfortunately diagnosed with Genetic Epilepsy after a Tonic Clonic seizure.

Mackenzie is now almost 5 years old and continues to battle daily with seizures and the side effects of them. Mackenzie continues to trial medications and at some stages, is on 3 or 4 different types at once, but to this day, we have been unable to find one that will control her seizures.

As she gets older, her confidence and anxiety get worse with each seizure. We are stuck between her wanting to be independent, to not being able to in case she has a seizure. After months of discussing different alerting systems, trying out watches, bed mats and monitors, we have come to the decision that an Assistant Dog would not only benefit Mackenzie by allowing us to be notified of a seizure, but also giving her the confidence to have the independence that she needs. We appreciate any donation that can be made towards our campaign and hope to allow Mackenzie to live her live as a normal 5 year old

Your donation will be greatly appreciated no matter how big or small. This organisation is a non for-profit organisation. The training for the pup can take 12-14 months but it is intense, and these dogs are just incredible.

Thank you for your donation! All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

    I’m sorry this is happening to you, she reminds me so much of my own daughter even though I have not met her, I feel your pain, I feel your eagerness to take this away from her. I commend you for being the strong mother you are and instead of breaking down you hold it together for your baby. As I’m writing this I’m crying because I can feel you ♥️ I hope our monthly donation helps you
