Dog for diabetic child could be a lifesaver


Somerset —

Also, the Somerset Police Department is holding a basketball fundraiser on March 22 at Somerset High School. It will pit the police against the Somerset Fire Department to raise money for Haylee’s dog. Again, call Dana Whitis for more information.
“Until there is a cure ...” is the motto the Whitis family is using in promoting the fundraising efforts for the service dog. It’s in that spirit of hope that the family believes the community will step up to the challenge of making a difficult life better for one very special little girl.
“Eventually, when this dog is trained, it will go to school with (Haylee) and take care of her 24 hours a day,” said Dana Whitis. “It will give us security and peace of mind.”
