Join me in turning Type One into Type None!

    Dear Type 1 Diabetes,

    We have been living together now for over 28 years.  We have had our highs and lows.  I am sure I have done things and met people I never would have without you.   I have definately learned a lot about myself however I think it is time we seriously consider ending this relationship.  I have so much scar tissue, I am running out of places to wear my insulin pump and the energy it takes to try and keep you in control can be overwhelming. 

    In 2009, I rode the Death Valley Ride for a Cure.  My motivation for that ride was the hope that we could find a cure before I passed you down to another generation.  This year I ride again with those hopes and with a renewed hope that we can also find the cure during my brother Andrew's and my lifetime.  David will be joining me this time and hopefully by doubling our efforts we can speed up the process.  I am ready to end this unhealthy relationship for good!

    Melinda
