Talk: Elle and Coach

Stefany Shaheen visited Google's office in Cambridge, MA to discuss her book, "Elle and Coach: Diabetes, the Fight for My Daughter's Life, and the Dog Who Changed Everything". The book describes how the Shaheens try everything to manage daughter Elle's deadly and unpredictable disease. 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.
