Did you know that diabetes affects 366 million people worldwide? More than 15,000 adults and 15,000 children are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) every year in the U.S. alone. On January 23, 2006 our 2-year-old son, JACOB became one of those kids and his life changed forever.
JACOB spent 6 long nights in the hospital being constantly poked and injected. He will be forced to manage his condition on a daily basis with constant monitoring of his blood glucose levels, multiple insulin injections, and a controlled diet.
By the time he turns 18 years old, JACOB will have had more than 65,000 finger pricks and more than 15,000 insulin injections.
We have faced this challenge head on and our JACOB has been a true SWEET WARRIOR every step of the way. We are now committed to raising awareness and fundraising to find a cure.
