Nine year old Abbi Broadway was diagnosed with epilepsy and with seizures happening throughout the night, Abbi’s Mom Robin began looking toward training their black lab Preston to be a service dog that alerts to seizures.
“It’s going to cost upwards of $20,000,” Robin says.
To help raise money, Abbi started baking her own healthy dog treats and started selling them at her local Farmers Market and then built a fantastic looking web site Called Abbi’s to sell them online.
“We’re raising money so I can get a service dog,” Abbi told people at the market.
A week ago Preston crossed over the rainbow bridge, causing a bit of a set back, but not discouraging Abbi.
The 9-year-old will now have to raise even more funds to help get the service dog she needs.
“I’m not sad that I have seizures, it’s just part of my life,” she told reporters.
