Boy with diabetes saves pennies for 4 years to get service dog
Eight-year-old Aiden Heath has spent a little over four years collecting loose change with a goal in mind. And that dedication paid off this week when he finally came face-to-snout with his very own service dog, Angel. "Aiden looked at me and said, 'This is a dream,'" his mother, Jenni Heath, told ABC News. Aiden, of Waitsfield, Vermont, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes four years ago. Soon after he learned about canines trained to help monitor glucose levels in people.
