Update #2

Update posted 4 days ago

Update! Beast was able to attend the Valentine’s dance and turn some horrible memories into some sweet lemonade. However, she did have another seizure on Sunday. We will be going inpatient again for an extended EEG to hopefully get some answers. Please keep praying and thank you to everyone who has shared, donated, prayed, sent good vibes, loved on our family, etc. 💜🦡🍋


Sophia, aka Beast and Honey Badger, is an avid wrestler who has been battling an unknown medical concern for 2+ years. She has recently been approved by 4 paws for ability to receive a service dog to assist her in life.


Sophia fights tonic clonic seizures, syncope episodes, panic attacks and more. She’s endured many hospital stays and countless tests to include EEGs, EKGs, CTs, MRIs, 30 day heart monitors, medication changes and more. 

Sophia is one of four children in the home and everyone is “on alert” for an event. A service dog will assist her with gaining independence and transitioning from an active teenager to a young adult. The service dog will be multipurpose trained specific for Sophia to provide seizure response, alert to seizures - she has zero feelings aka auras before a seizure which have resulted in many dangerous situations of concussions, etc., provide behavior disruption to assist when the mental health side of this journey becomes overwhelming and just provide peace of mind to the entire family to be able to rest assured her pup will alert us if something is wrong (especially during showers and/or sleep) etc. 

While Sophia has been approved, she will not be active on the waitlist until we raise all the funds. The entire process is roughly 2 years long and the whole family will spend two weeks at the training facility when the service dog is placed. We are humbly asking for any assistance from donations, shares, prayers, etc. nothing is too small. 

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out. Let’s help this girl make some lemonade! 💜🦡🍋
