The deets: Lincoln is ten years old and has had life-threatening food and environmental allergies since he was a baby. Instead of outgrowing them, they are getting worse. When he has a reaction his lips swell, his throat closes and during his last reaction, he started having cardiac arrest symptoms. The doctors have told his family that the reactions are worsening and the time frame in which they have to get him to the hospital is dwindling.
The only solution for Lincoln at this time is to get him an allergy assistance dog. Like seeing eye dogs, these dogs are specially trained to assist their owner. For Lincoln, this smart pooch will sniff out hidden allergens not only in his foods, but also in his environment. Of course, Lincoln is also allergic to dogs, so he needs a Super Sniffer - a hypoallergenic breed. The total cost of a Super Sniffer is $20,000. We're trying to raise $5000.
