Hailey Howard Secures Seizure Alert Dog
Hailey started having seizures at 6 months old and was officially diagnosed with epilepsy shortly thereafter. The condition causes anywhere from sudden involuntary muscle movement to a brief loss of awareness. Hailey experienced about two to three seizures a week, but recently she underwent neurosurgery performed to remove the affected focal seizure area on the right side of her brain. The outcome was a significant decrease in seizure severity and frequency, however the surgery slightly weakened her left side, but now with weekly therapy she has shown much improvement.

The family has been trying to raise $15,000 to buy a specially-trained seizure alert dog. With generous donations from Spark of Hope, friends, family and other private interests they were able to secure her four legged “wonder dog”.
