DOG Name: BEACON
Certification:
AD-MED-DAD
Team Since: 2019

Abi Kiradjieff

Abi is a UNCW student. She lives off-campus in Wilmington during the school year and in Matthews with her parents during the summer. She was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic when she was 9 years old. Even though she has been a diabetic for a long time, she has struggled with the transition from her parents’ home to college. The struggle has been due to the fact that she doesn’t have her parents constantly reminding her to check her blood sugar, she doesn’t have the assistance when needing to get medication, and she sometimes wakes up feeling dizzy or sick due to her blood sugars dropping in the night. Abi hopes that having an Assistance Dog will allow her the confidence and peace of mind to enjoy her young life!

Abi met BEACON in June 2019. BEACON will be a wonderful companion for Abi, and will alert to her low blood sugar levels. BEACON will also help by retrieving medication for her, and anchoring when Abi gets dizzy. Together this team will do great things!
