Please Support Team SOPHIA'S HOPE

First, I would like to thank those of you who have given so generously in the fight to cure diabetes. Last year, with your help, Team Sophia's Hope raised over $4,000! We hope to be able to match or better that amount for the walk on February 22, 2014.

Why am I walking to raise donations for JDRF?

When Sophia was first diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, I looked into her face and saw:

Sadness - as she asked 'why her' when she realized that she'd need insulin shots for the rest of her life

Frustration - that she cannot eat what she wants, when she wants without first needing an insulin shot

Exhaustion - from constant blood pricks in the middle of the night

Pain- as she crinkled her face to prep for another insulin shot

Fear - that people would look at and treat her differently

Hurt - because of the cruel child who teased her at school

Today I see:

Strength - as she faces Diabetes head on every single day

Courage - to fight for what she needs for a healthier life

Resilience - as she keeps moving forward to achieve her dreams  

Love - as she encourages newly diagnosed children to adjust to Diabetes

and:

Hope - that she'll be free of Diabetes because we will find a cure.

Please help Sophia (and so many others) realize that Hope.  Please donate.

Thank you very much.

Lisa
