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 readers 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.
