Chris Gardner Yes sure Debbie. In a nutshell I was diagnosed as type 1 Diabetic in 2005 when I collapsed at work at the age of 22. I awoke to be told I was type 1 Diabetic and given insulin pens and very little advice. I struggled for 10 years with multiple A n E admissions and ambulance call outs. And virtually house bound with my wife as my full time carer as I was unable to be left alone for any period of time. For the last 6 years until I helped by Medical Detection Dogs who have changed my life with Jade my diabetic alert dog and since having her nearly 4 months she has told me 456 times to high and low blood sugar levels which has saved not only my life but the NHS a huge bill.

Chris Gardner Thank you Pauline and Jacqueline she has truly changed my life. And my family's life. She has given me a whole new lease of life that I though was over. But now I can live my life to its full potential with my amazing best friend Jade. I couldn't imagine life before her now worrying if I was going to wake in the morning now I get woken to a lovely lick and paw to let me know to check my sugar as she keeps me alive every day. She is just truly amazing thanks everyone and especially Debbie for all her hard work this weekend to help MDD.

Debbie Flint Dawn - YES i definitely want to do something like this again. We raised £1200 on the day, plus £1300 via the online Mega Draw, plus more from the bodyblade sponsored event, totalling about £3k! So thank you everyone so much! BUT I have a question!! So it costs about £11k to train a puppy - we can now name one for £2k, but I'd like to reach £11k in the next year. SO my questions are...

Debbie Flint Yvonne Simpson not yet - I'm hoping to get some links for all the MDD news and videos over the weekend - can anyone help me and find some and post them on this strand? The fact that the MDD dogs were soooo high profile on the very weekend we held our fundraiser has to be fortuitous don't you think? THe news for those who missed it was that the MDD gang have got the go ahead to use the dogs to help sniff out prostate cancer from hospital samples of urine as they are so accurate

Chris Gardner She alerts to the imbalances in my blood sugar levels with her amazing sense of smell. If I'm at home She loves to paw me to alert to high and low blood sugar levels. And if I ignore her she will then start to whine which will then turn into a bark and then she will jump on me and start licking my face and pin me down till I check. If I'm out she like to back off on the lead, paw and jump at me. Which is amazing to see as I have had people stop me and ask what she's doing as they have never seen a dog do this before. She's just amazing and words can't describe how grateful I am to have her. She is trained to alert me when my sugar go below 5 and above 12 so I have enough warning to help myself.

Chris Gardner Absolutely her latest statistics are 99% correct on low blood sugars and 97% correct on high blood sugars which is brill as from having no awareness and collapsing all the time to have Jade as my early warning system is just unbelievable. And how accurate she is too makes it even more amazing.

Here are a couple of videos I took when at the HQ this week (July 14th 2015.) 

Go here to see the mixture of adorable pooches and hear what some of them do.

go here to see Rob explain how they do the training in the research lab 

and prepare yourself for some super fast detecting in this video of one of the dogs reaching an astonishing parts per million detecting rate - click here (video)

plus - watch and listen to Simba giving his owner Carolyn an alert when he detects her blood sugar is not right - he will keep doing this till she checks her bloods. When I was there she had an alert - I'd never heard a noise like this from a labrador, and I've had them for 16 years. He is supposed to alert her if her blood sugar goes below 5 or over 15. When she checked it it was 14.9. Amazing.

Medical Detection Dogs support people with serious health conditions such as diabetes and Addisons by alerting them prior to a medical emergency. Our first study showed that dogs can detect bladder cancer volatiles and are carrying out a study into whether dogs can detect prostate cancer from urine samples and breast cancer from breath samples (samples taken from hospital patients.)

That's why I decided to support this charity. Who knows, if we raise £2000 we may even be able to name one of the detector dogs! Come back here for regular updates in the run up to the event.
