In November Adrianna will officially have had Type 1 Diabetes for half of her life. I can no longer stand to count the finger pricks, needles, or pump sites. I can't bare to think about the physical pain that I can do nothing about. I CAN accept that this is her life and she has made it the BEST for herself. If you know Adrianna, you know she is fun and happy and active and crazy and beautiful. And this disease is not going to get in her way!
The reality is that T1D does lead to complications, some she has no control over. We can (and do) get the best technology and tests and doctors, but we can not insure that later in life these complications won't come up. Heart disease, kidney disease, nerve damage, retinopathy are all common complications, especially after years of dealing with T1D. Our hope is that Adrianna will not spend her lifetime living with T1D. Our hope is that she will be cured before any complications arise.
Would you please consider joining us again as we show her our love and support?
Join The A Team as we participate in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes on October 19th at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront! We would love to have as many friends and family there to be a part of this special day.
If you can not be there please continue to keep her and all the other people dealing with diabetes in your thoughts and prayers.
We definitely appreciate any and all donations to JDRF as they work to find ways to make diabetes more managable while they find the cure!
And a truly sincere "Thank You" from our family for your constant love and support through the years.
