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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"ELLE & COACH is a must-read--not just for parents of children with chronic illnesses, but for any parent who's ever wished to make life easier for a child who is struggling with something daunting. As the mom of a son who faced multiple surgeries during his childhood, I was deeply moved by Elle's experiences--and inspired by the beacon of hope that her service dog provides. I have a feeling this book is going to change a lot of lives for the better." "Jodi Picoult, "New York Times"-bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and Leaving Time""
"In addition to being a great read, the story of ELLE & COACH will open eyes to the very real struggle of life with type 1 diabetes, and may well change the conversations we have about how to make lives better while we work toward better treatments and ultimately a cure." "Dean Kamen, Inventor and Founder of DEKA Research & Development Corporation""
"This book is much more than a heartwarming story about a triumphant little girl and her amazing dog. It's a book about never giving up hope." "Michael J. Fox, actor, producer, and activist""
The book will surely resonate with parents or caretakers of children living with any chronic health condition. "New Hampshire Magazine""
