Who we are



To assist individuals affected by Type 1 Diabetes obtain a Diabetic Alert Dog by helping to provide the resources and financial assistance necessary.


When Santa couldn't bring the Diabetic Alert Dog our 8 year old daughter Emma wanted, she took matters into her own hands, selling paintings and raising money on her own.  

Her determination attracted a great deal of attention and when Newsday published a story about her efforts in the Sunday paper, her Christmas wish came true.

Emma was inspired and asked if she could keep selling paintings and surprise another child with a Diabetic Alert Dog. 

And so Emma's Journey was to become something wonderful, a way for our family to give back and help others who's lives can be improved with the addition of a Diabetic Alert Dog.
