In May of 2011 Our son Ray was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. There is no way to describe the feeling of finding out your child is not 100% perfectly healthy. That day our lives changed, HIS life changed. The journey to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes seems impossible at times and you may feel like your donation is too small to make a difference, we feel that way a lot. It is important to remember how far we have come! In the years before the 20th century a diagnoses of diabetes meant certain death. By 1921 Elizabeth Hughes, one of the first children to be treated with insulin, lived to be 74 years old. That is in a 20 year span!!!!! Ray will be 28 in 20 years...still only beginning his adult life. Our donations today could be the key to achieving a diabetes free world and the best gift you could ever give my Son. Please consider donating to our JDRF Walk team this year, every penny that is donated is going toward the day when Ray doesn't have to prick his finger 10 times a day. Every penny gets us closer to the day when he no longer needs insulin shots or has to worry about counting carbs in everything he puts in his mouth. Every single cent gives him a chance of getting rid of this terrible disease forever.
Thank you for reading, thank you for your support and your donations.
