Publisher's Summary

The endearing true story of a type-A mom struggling to care for a daughter who has type 1 diabetes - and the incredible service dog who changes their lives for the better.

Stefany Shaheen takes listeners on an emotional journey as she tries everything to manage her daughter Elle's deadly and unpredictable disease, all while juggling a family of four children. Overcoming the skepticism that a dog can provide answers that medical science is still seeking, the family finds a resounding sense of peace and reassurance through Coach's near miraculous abilities as a medic-alert dog, specially trained to detect dangerous changes in blood sugar levels. Elle & Coach is a story of determination and finding hope in the most unlikely of places.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Hope"

    All of us with T1 children know how hard this is - the toll it takes, the stress, fatigue. It was hard to relive so many of the same experiences and challenges as Elle and her family by listening to this book. But I'm grateful for it because these stories need to be told.

    I'm most grateful for the hope this story has given me. I've been thinking about a service dog for my son for a while. I can't wait to look into it in earnest.

    I'd be super grateful for even a sliver of the positive experience and benefits Coach provides through his amazing work.

    "A great book about the power of service dogs"

    This is a great book about hope and the ability of a service dog to save lives. My only annoyance with this book was that it presents evidence throughout of the dog saving and changing a young girl with Type 1 diabetes' life and then at the end, it Speed doubt about it being verifiable! So strange. Other than that it is a great story about a family, the challenges of diabetes and about social responsibility in a family that takes civic duty seriously. Very inspiring.
