We walk to find a cure to this lifelong, incurable disease for all those who suffer, but it is also personal because Dylan has suffered from Type 1 for 25 years and we are sick of watching him live with it! Watching someone live with diabetes on a day-to-day basis has really opened my eyes to some of the little known side effects like compromised immunity leading to MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans) and just how complicated regulating glucose in a human body can be. This is all in addition to struggling with the daily nuances like needle poking, insulin injections, low blood sugars, high blood sugars, etc. We walk so that hopefully Dylan doesn't have to deal with all of this for the rest of his life and can peacefully watch his three beautiful children grow for many years to come.
