As my son took the stage to get his blue beads, waves of sadness and pride washed over me. I would give anything for my son to not be standing along side all of his fellow diabetics, but at the same time I am so proud of how strong he is and the strength of our diabetic community.
These past 19 months I have met and grown close to so many local families fighting the same battle that we are fighting. Seeing those families yesterday and standing along side of them at an event to cure our loved ones, is empowering and comforting. We are not alone, we are in this together, we are family!
We will cure Type 1 Diabetes, We will not stop until we do! We will keep fighting to keep our children and loved ones alive, we will keep raising awareness and we will keep fundraising for that CURE!
Type 1 Diabetes.......your days are numbered!
-until next time
