Diabetes Dog for Boy on Hold

Diabetes Dog for Boy on Hold
Posted February 27th, 2014 @ 6:32pm by KFBK News - Tim Lantz

The parents of a Citrus Heights boy with Down Syndrome and diabetes say they still need your help to raise money.

7-year-old Nicholas Keim is waiting for a specially trained dog named Andy, despite generous contributions from the community.

According to Nicholas' mother, Krista Keim, some of the donations made to a fundraising website are not legitimate.

As a result, she says the family is about $6,400 short of the $20,000 needed to pay for Andy, who is capable of alerting the family of potentially life-threatening blood sugar spikes in Nicholas.
