On February 28th, Lindsay was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. The first few months were rather difficult adjusting to life with diabetes. Lindsay has to have her carbs counted for every meal. She receives insulin injections 4 times a day, and numerous finger pricks throughout the day.
We are trying to raise money to support JDRF. They are working to try to find a cure for Type I diabetes, but they also provide care and support for families and children with diabetes. JDRF sponsors events for kids and families with diabetes. It gives them the opportunity to meet children like them. A newly diagnosed child is sent a backpack filled with children's books and Rufus, the diabetes bear. It may not sound like much, but when you are a kid, it is little things like that make a difference.
Type I diabetes is a genetic disease. It is not something that she will grow out of, it is a condition that she will live with for the rest of her life.
Hearing that your perfect little princess has a condition that will affect her for her entire life as you can imagine like any father my first reaction was how do I fix it. I cant change what has happened but I can raise money for the people than can hopefully find a cure and provide some much needed guidance and comfort until then.
Thank You for your support
