On Oct 28,2012.Our family will be walking in the JDRF WALK TO CURE DIABETES.As you may know,we have a personal connection with this disease that affects millions of children and adults.Our daughter, Bella was diagnose with Type I diabetes two years ago,as a result,besides closely monotoring her diet,Bella must test her blood sugar levels at least 5-6 times a day and take insulin shots at every meal and as needed.This equates to approximately 1,100 finger sticks and 1,440 shots in her legs,arms ,buttocks and in her belly every year.And this will continue every year for the rest of her life unless a Cure is found.As you can imagine ,this has forever changed all of our lives. In our attempt to encoutrage and support Bella, while educating those we know,we have formed TEAM BELLA in order to do two things) 1: raise money to support the research required to find better treatments and a cure,and 2) to provide Bella with support and let her know that she is not alone with this disease.It has also taught her that she can do anything else she wants. To accomplish our goal of forming a very large team to show our support. We are actively recruting anyone who would like to join us on our team and raise money in support of TEAM BELLA and the JDRF WALK TO CURE DIABETES.
