(WKBW/ABC News) 7 year old Evan Moss from Alexandria, Virginia has written a book about how a service dog would help him manage his epilepsy.

It's a 26-page book titled "My Seizure Dog", and he even did the illustrations himself.

The book is on sale, and profits from the book will help pay for the dog.

Evan knows the dog will alert his family when he's having a life-threatening seizure, caused by his epilepsy.

The Moss family needs 13 thousand dollars to get a dog who's specially trained by a group called "4 Paws for Ability" to meet its owners specific needs.

Evan, who once suffered three to four hundred seizures a month, now has much fewer, but much stronger seizures.

His parents hope having the dog will allow more safety and freedom for their son.
