Is there a help for people who are diagnosed with diabetes? Service dogs to the people who are diagnosed with diabetes?
The two Washtenaw County women have recently formed a group that they will provide service dogs to the people who are diagnosed with diabetes.
Canines of Hope is an organization formed by Leslie Naebeck and Michelle Redies of Saline; and the group helps raise funds that is used to buy service dogs that are trained to help the diabetic individuals.
These service dogs would cost them between cost $20,000 and $25,000. In case anybody wants a special service dog and is unable to afford then the organization would help them raise funds through the many fundraisers available in the area.

Both Redies and Naebeck are familiar with the stress created by
discovering a loved one has diabetes. Redies 27-year-old daughter,
Amanda, was diagnosed with Type 1 at 19 years old. Naebeck’s 7-year-old daughter, Ella, received her diagnosis at age 3.
Redies and Naebeck met through a mutual friend, who was helping Naebeck raise money to purchase a service dog for Ella.
Naebeck remembered the day that Ella received her diagnosis. Both she and her husband had noticed that Ella was drinking 120 ounces of water a day and eating a large amount of food. However, she was not gaining any weight.
