Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D), but especially for 10 year old Avery, who was diagnosed with T1D in August of 2012.
That day started like any other day. And then I received a call from a young Mother that I couldn't be closer to if she were my own biological daughter, saying that they were at the hospital, and that Avery was just diagnosed with T1D. I watched as this diagnoses, this illness changed Avery's and his families lives forever. I also watched the love in action and the courage of this family as they made the changes to ensure that Avery's life would be as long and as healthy as possible. And Seeing how Avery's family used their reliance on our God Jehovah, and how they used all the help from doctors, caregivers and educators, family and friends to give Avery the best life possible, fills my heart with joy. Above all watching how courageous Avery has been from his diagnoses at just 9 years old, through the pricks and shots not just during the day, but all during the night, and the life style changes, dietary changes that no young person should have to make, and the ups and downs of blood sugar levels fills me with pride, love and awe. What a trooper he is! If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away. I walk for AVERY, who I love dearly! He is my #1.
