Welcome to our 2013 Walk for a Cure page!!!
As most of you know, my son Dylan has Type 1 Diabetes. He was diagnosed the day before his 8th birthday. Dylan's life depends on insulin to regulate the sugars in his body. He checks his blood sugar at least 7 times a day and wears an insulin pump. It's not a perfect system, but I am so proud of how far Dylan has come. This is our 6th year to do the JDRF Walk for a Cure. The first year, we didn't raise any money. We were still in survival mode. I remember walking up to the registration booth and seeing all the people whose lives are effected by T1 diabetes and bursting into tears because we weren't alone anymore.
Here is the video I made in 2011. It is an emotional tribute to my favorite son. It's so emotional to see how far he has come. Hopefully I will make a new video this year, but it's a rough project. So for now... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44hQLV1jdLc
