This is Luke

On September 20th, 2011 Luke's pancreas suddenly stopped producing insulin and he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes - He was only 2 years old. Since then he has endured over 8000 blood glucose tests and over 4000 shots and pump cannula insertions. Luke is hypoglycemic unaware - which means we could loose him to low blood sugars. There is no way to cure or prevent this disease. A Diabetic Alert Dog can save his life.
