Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
I will walk for Tyler, my son.
7/7/08 is the day our lives changed forever. That is the day we found out Tyler has Type 1 diabetes and their is no cure. That is the day I realized my son would live with this disease the rest of his life. That is the day I found out how un-fair life really is. 7/7/08 is also the day I decided to not let Type 1 get in my son's way. I vowed to support him in any way possible. To be his finger poker at 3 am, to calculate doses on days he doesn't want to, to basically be his pancreas so he doesn't have to worry about it. Our family has come along way since that day, as Tyler continues to grow and mature into a wonderfully caring young man.
Tyler has lived with diabetes for 5 years now, and things are much calmer where diabetes is concerned. But I will still honor my vow to my son, so I will walk with him. Not in front of him, not behind him, but right beside him. I do this to show my support and to let him know that he is not alone in his battle.
So I ask you, friends and family, to show your support for Tyler as well. Donate if you can, any little bit helps in finding a cure. Donation not an option? Then come and walk with us. Lets show all those living with Type 1 that they are not alone, and that we are all right there with them!
GO TEAM TYLER!!
Thank you for your support!
