DOG Name: BRIAR
Team Since: 2016
Mia is a happy young teenager, full of life and energy. On the outside, you would never know that Mia has Epilepsy. For the most part her seizures are under control but as Mia enters her teen years and gains independence her parents worry that she will have a seizure when she alone or out with friends. Being a normal teenage girl she faces normal self-conscience issues, which are compounded with the fear of having a seizure at school, a social event, or anytime she would be alone.
Mia met BRIAR in August of 2016 and she now has hope for an independent future. BRIAR will assist Mia by responding to her seizures. BRIAR will press an emergency button to get help to Mia, she will be able to retrieve a medicine bag and will assist with deep pressure therapy during and after a seizure. She will also alert Mia’s parents when they are at home if Mia is in distress.
We are excited to see this team grow together!
