Family holds fundraiser to get a service dog

The community rallied behind a two-year old in need. 

Sunday hundreds of people did their part to get Sadie Mae a service dog.

Sadie suffers from epilepsy. 

Her family told us she'll be much safer with a service dog, along with having a better quality of life.

These dogs don't come cheap.

The family hoped to raise around 30 thousand dollars.

"Assit her in preventing seizures that are coming on. Unfortunately it won't prevent them, but it will at least give her a heads up so she can be in a safe position along with her parents and her grandmother will also be prepared and ready for a seizure to come on," said Heather O'Connor, the event coordinator.

The family told us Sadie would receive a puppy, so the two can grow up together.
