8-year-old Kellsey McGuire was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was 18-months-old. She suffers from chronic seizures.
Brandi McGuire, mother, says, “Kellsey has had seizures in the past where she stopped breathing and she goes unresponsive and she turns blue. And we have to rush her to the hospital.”
Brandi says her daughter has had up to 90 seizures in one day. After years of sleepless nights, the family turned to Jasper, Kelsey’s service dog.
Brandi says, “It’s very important that Jasper is there. I mean he is her furry little angel. HE is the one that comes and tells us when she is having a seizure.”
Kellsey started taking Jasper to Sherrard Grade School in January, but less than a month later, the school said Kellsey could no longer bring him.
