Dear Friends & Family,
As many of you already know, Liv was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes just weeks ago. She has taken this on like a true warrior, handling her day-to-day routine like a hero, no matter how many times she has to prick her finger each day to check her blood glucose level or inject herself with insulin before each meal. She is however, continuing to do everything she did before the diagnosis, like play soccer, tennis, dance and still rocking the ever popular front & back walkovers any chance she gets! . She is a happy, healthy, funny, smart, beautiful 5th grader who loves to hang out with her friends; she just happens to be diabetic, diabetes will never define her.
Her big brothers Luke & Easton have been wonderful, loving & very heartening. We have been overwhelmed by the support & love of our friends & family. This has only confirmed our steadfast belief that it truly does take a village, we feel so grateful to be embraced by the spirit of our community. There are no words large enough or sweet to thank you all for that, but please know that you are our sustainers
On October 6th, our family will be walking in the annual JDRF Ron Santo walk to cure diabetes. We have formed a team to walk, "Liv.Life.Full". Liv, Luke, Easton, Michael and myself would like to invite you and your families to join our team and walk with us to support Liv and help fund a cure for T1D. Walking in the walk-a-thon is easy, open to everyone, and there is no cost to register. We encourage all walkers to register with our team on the website (link will be at the bottom of this e-mail) because only the registered walkers get the good stuff! ie- t-shirts, food and drink, kids zone, and entertainment after the walk. Everyone is welcome including strollers and dogs! We will have a tent with a large banner - "Liv.Life.Full" - for everyone to gather in the morning before the walk located at the starting area. We will have bagels, cream cheese, and waters to get people going! The walk-a-thon start is at Montrose Harbor and is fully explained on the website.
Also, we will be ordering team t-shirts. Our team link is provided below to register for the walk and if anyone chooses to donate to JDRF, you can do so on this same site under our team. It is the direct link to our family page on the JDRF site.
Lastly, if I have missed anyone with this e-mail please feel free to forward. If you have any questions or need help with registering, please e-mail us or call us at 847-831-0525.
Thank you so much!
Franny, Michael, Easton, Luke & Liv
