For this year's walk I have been elected to carry the flag as it were. Dave and Erica are doing a marvelous job with managing Brendan's Diabetes. He is growing tall and strong but the fight is a never ending one. Constant diligence is required for monitoring, food intake, excersize, sleep patterns and a dozen other variables. This is a full time job which must be tended to while mainitaining employment and a semblance of a normal life. The goal is to defeat this disease for Brendan and all others that are struggling to live a normal life. The battle is on many fronts and requires large sums of money to fight. That is why your support is so desperately needed. We are grateful for any and all support and we thank you in advance.
