From the facebook event page:
"This event is to raise the funds to get Maggie Lou Hughes (9 years old) and Reagan Dollar (4 years old) each a Diabetec Alert Dog (DAD), these girls were recently diagnosed with TYPE 1 diabetes. DAD's are able to alert their owners of an impending blood sugar high or low, BEFORE IT CHANGES. These dogs are life changing additions to diabetics. It offers them a higher level of "control" on their bodies. Damage is caused to their organs when their blood sugar swings high and low, and it is cumulative over time. These very special dogs are able to minimize this long term damage and offer these girls a healthier future, and a safer today. The cost of these dogs is $20k (each) over two years. Our goal is to put a serious dent in those funds for these families.
