Jaeden's Magic





  • Jaeden


We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!  

Our son Jaeden was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes two days before Christmas 2010 when he was just three years old. He laid across his father's lap limp and gray in color while I( his mother) was being instructed on how to give him a shot. About fifteen minutes after Jaeden received his first dose of insulin he sat up and said " I like shots, they make me feel better". It was then that we learned just how strong our little boy was. He continues to amaze us everyday with the way he handles living with diabetes.

Our team name Jaeden's magic came about when Jaeden said to me "Mom I am going to get rid of my diabetes" and I asked "how are you going to do that?". He responded with "you will just have to wait and see". Feeling uneasy about his answer I asked " what do you mean?" Jaeden said " I am going to cast a spell on myself" I asked what kind of spell?". He replied with " a spell that says make Jaeden's diabetes go away" he paused for a moment and then continued with " I just need a little magic". fighting back tears I held him and said " hopefully someday you will get your magic".  

Please help Jaeden get his magic by making a donation to help find a cure for diabetes.

Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
