Did you know that diabetes affects 366 million people worldwide? More than 15,000 adults and 15,000 children are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) every year in the U.S. alone. On August 28, 2012 our then 2-year-old daughter, Isabella (Isa), became one of those kids.
Isa spent 3 long nights in the hospital being constantly poked and injected. She was very happy when she finally went home to be with us and her brother and sister (they're triplets!). Isa is doing great, but her life will be forever changed.
She will be forced to manage her condition on a daily basis with a controlled diet, constant monitoring of her blood glucose levels and 24-hour use of an insulin pump. By the time she turns 18 years old, Isa will have had more than 40,000 finger pricks and thousands of insulin pump site changes.
We are committed to raising awareness and fundraising to find a cure & we thank you for your support!
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
