Teen would like assistance in paying for a service dog
May 1, 2019
A Green River High School sophomore is trying to raise money to pay for a service dog to help her manage her Type 1 diabetes.
"I was diagnosed Oct. 5, 2017, with Type 1 diabetes," Mya Tollefson said. "My pancreas was attacked by my body and not working, so I have to take insulin."
While Tollefson was at school, her friend, Delaney Gardea, was telling her about service dogs that can detect when someone' blood sugar is too low or too high.
"I didn't know what she was planning," Tollefson said. "I got a surprise for you." Tollefson said Gardea told her she was going to get her a service dog.
