Texoma Boy in Need of Diabetic Alert Dog
Here in Texoma a 6-year-old boy is in need of your help.
Blake Fields has type one diabetes and is in need of a diabetic alert dog to help him know when his blood sugar is too low.
The problem is the price tag. The service animal cost 18-thousand dollars.
And, that's why many people in the community are coming together for a benefit, so that Blake can soon get his guardian.
It's set for Friday, February 8th, starting at 6 p.m. at the Elks Lodge at 4205 Seymour Highway.
For 10 dollars per person you can enjoy a nice Mexican dinner.
There will also be a live auction, bake sale, a dance, kids activities, games and much more.
Donations are certainly welcome too.
