Regan Byrne diabetic fund



Two-year old Regan Byrne has been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. She has to be checked every three hours to maintain a normal blood sugar level. As a part of her treatment plan, a medical alert service dog will assist with her monitoring. These dogs are trained to alert diabetic handlers in advance of low (hypoglycemia) or high (hyperglycemia) blood sugar events before they become dangerous. The Diabetic Alert Dog's early detection allows the handler to take the proper steps to return their blood sugar to a normal healthy range. Byrne’s family will have to raise approximately $15,000 for dog. In conjunction with Lions Club International’s new diabetes initiative, the Berkeley Springs Lions Club started off the donations along with District 29 I. A bank account has been opened at CNB Bank for anyone interested in making a donation. For more information, contact Lion John Mason at 304-820-7742 or get in touch with any other Lions Club members.
