Help get 2-year-old Meadow Loy a service dog on GiveForward.com

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Crowdsourcing has helped start many businesses. But you can also go to GiveForward.com and make a huge difference in a local little girl's life by helping raise enough money for a service dog today.

Michael Loy and Jessica Busche are parents to a wonderful two-year-old named Meadow, who was diagnosed with epilepsy. Meadow's seizures are hard to detect. They aren't like what people imagine.

A service dog would be a great help for Michael, Jessica and Meadow's teachers or other caregivers to detect her seizures and save her from the dangers that come along with her condition.

The church that Meadow's family attends has been instrumental, spreading the word to members of their community as to how they can help and educating them about how service dogs change the lives of those who need them.

So far, the church has helped to raise $8,000. But they need a total of $13,000 to get the service dog for Meadow.

Michael Loy said the service dog actually costs $22,000. He and Jessica have to come up with $13,000 and the company/foundation will pitch in the rest. He said the whole family will go out of state for two weeks to train with whichever dog takes to Meady.

Loy sends a great big thank you to everyone who watched Monday morning, to those who have already helped them so much and to those who are taking the time to spread the word.

If you find you are in a position to help Meadow, you can make a donation on the "Meadow Loy" Give Forward page through Oct. 31.

Donations can also be sent to Trinity Church 2505 Boomer Lane Yorkville, Illinois 60560, with this line at the top: ATTN: Meadow Loy.
