Grandmothers are known for giving unconditional love to their grandchildren, but one grandmother in Tomball, in the Houston metropolitan area, is taking it a step further.
Royce Roberts, 83, wanted to help her grandson Pierson Hall, who has Type I diabetes. She knew the 11-year-old from Frisco wanted a diabetic alert dog, but also knew the cost associated with it.
Roberts decided she would raise money in a very unique way. Roberts wrote a book for her grandson and the proceeds from the book sales on Amazon will go to his new alert dog. The children’s book, Let's Pretend, educates kids about Type I diabetes.
Pierson’s mom posted a video on Facebook as she told him the news while he looked through the book his grandmother wrote.
