Seizure Response Team | Charlottetown, PEI
Lesleigh and her Dog Guide Blarney live in Charlottetown, PEI. Blarney, a Seizure Response Dog Guide, has made an immeasurable impact on Lesleigh’s life. Lesleigh suffers from debilitating seizures daily, and has experience up to 13 in one day. Due to the frequency of her seizures, Lesleigh was severely injuring herself as they would come without warning. She has broken both arms, legs, her jaw, suffered multiple concussions, and a skull fracture which left her in a coma for three days.
Blarney is trained to warn Lesleigh when she has an oncoming seizure so she is able to stop and sit down, having this warning has changed her life. “I went from being reclusive to having a better quality of life. Blarney gives me a quality of life I never thought I would see again,” says Lesleigh; “These [Dog Guides] help us accomplish anything we set our minds to. Without your donations it wouldn’t be possible.”
