I have set up Team Roxy Little Foot in honor of my Seizure Alert Dog Roxy. Even though very sadly my little Roxy passed away in November 2013, Roxy will always be loved and remembered.
Roxy saved my life, more than once, and she taught me how to cope with epilepsy and live a happy life. So in honour of Roxy I want to help fundraise for Epilepsy Victoria who help hundreds of people living with Epilepsy everyday.
My dog Roxy was not a professionally trained seizure alert Dog, as in neither myself or anyone else trained Roxy to detect my seizures. She just did it. She was extremely gifted and intuitive, and trained herself to detect my seizures.
I was very fortunate my little Roxy and I were that insync with each other, and had that extra unique everlasting bond.
I can never explain fully how it felt to have her protect me from injury and in some cases death the way she did.
She gave me tremendous support and love her whole life but especially through those tougher times where my epilepsy wasn't managed as well and seizures were a more constant occurrence for me.
All the medical practitioners from doctors, nurses, neurologists, neuro surgeons, chiropractors, myo therapists, and naturopaths, did disagree on many forms of treatment and causes, however they all agreed on one thing, that Roxy was amazing!!!
The never ending love and support Roxy gave me also really helped me manage and deal with the many side effects and challenges that can arise when living epilepsy, including depression and she kept motivating me to be persistent till I found the appropriate treatment and medication that works most effectively for me.
I am eternally grateful to Roxy, and it is my dream that through the beautiful life Roxy lived and her marvellous example I can help raise awareness for the outstanding abilities of other seizure alert Dogs that also loyally save people's lives and help them deal with epilepsy.
