I am doing my Bar Mitzvah project to raise money to find a cure for diabetes. The reason I am doing this project is for my Uncle Mike, my namesake. He was diagnosed with the disease when he was just a two years old, which was complicated by blood clots and celiac disease. He wasn’t supposed to live past age 13 but he beat the odds. He got married and operated many successful small businesses. He had a really tough life always having to manage his blood sugar and going in and out of the hospital when he was young. I never met him because he died a year before I was born. I’ve always heard about how awesome he was but the most important thing about him was that he never complained. Now that you’ve heard about him, you have a good sense of why I chose this for my Bar Mitzvah project. I am ecstatic to support this cause in Uncle Mike's name and I know he is looking down with nothing but joy and pride in his heart.
