'It could really save her life': Family raising money for 4-year-old daughter in need of service dog

For this little girl with a life-threatening seizure disorder, having a service dog could make all the difference.


A 4-year-old girl with a life-threatening seizure disorder is getting closer and closer to having her very own service dog thanks to the financial support of her family and community.

Savannah Lewis was born with a rare genetic condition that puts her at high risk of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy. Her parents say a service dog would alert them in time to help her in the event of a seizure, so they are trying to raise $17,000 for the partial cost of training the dog through the nonprofit organization 4 Paws for Ability.

Watch the video above to learn more about Savannah and how much a service dog would help her.
