Fundraiser Saturday in Penn Yan Will Help Get Seizure Dog

1 year old Claire Dillon of Lakemont was born with a disorder called Sturge-Weber Syndrome, which is associated with port wine stains, a birthmark that is covering 85 percent of her face and head.  At 3 months, Claire was diagnosed with a severe seizure disorder, which essentially causes a mini stroke that only ends with medicine.  The family's biggest concern is Claire will have a seizure that will go undetected, especially when they're sleeping.  Claire's grandmother Perrin Dillon tells us the best solution they've found is to introduce her to a service dog geared toward seizure detection.

 




                               

to help raise funds for the dog, a benefit will be held at the American Legion in Penn Yan Saturday afternoon starting at 4.....



Saturday's benefit dinner is 10 dollars for ages 10 and up, 5 dollars for those between 5 and 9 and kids under 5 eat for free.
