AGC members raised funds to help local family with seizure alert dog
Associated General Contractors of America President Jim Miller along with Justin and Toni Ivory will present a check to the Davis family on Tuesday, July 17, at 2:00 p.m. at the Nevada AGC office.
Members of the Nevada Chapter of the AGC have raised nearly $15,000 to help a local family afford a life-saving therapy dog for their daughter.
Ellie Davis was diagnosed with Refractory Epilepsy when she was 4-months old.
Owner of A-1 Steel and Past President of AGC Justin Ivory, learned about Ellie, he and his wife, Toni, led the effort to raise the remaining $15,000.
Through generous donations made by AGC members to the AGC Community Services Fund, Ellie will be the grateful owner of a new service dog that will be trained by Loyalty Service Dogs in Mesquite, NV.
The dog will undergo intense training to detect the chemical reaction that happens in the body prior to and during a seizure.
"With this dog by her side, Ellie will finally be able to live the life she deserves knowing if she needs help, he will find it for her." Janine Davis said. "Ellie has always loved animals, and wants to be a veterinarian. What better way for her to look to her future than for her to have a dog she can love and take care of while he loves and takes care of her."
