THE STORY:

Just before my 4th birthday,  I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. One of my earliest memories was my mother boiling the glass syringe and steel needle for reuse. My parents did everything possible to encourage me;  my mother even went back to college to get a degree in nutrition. All their efforts were met with my opposition and my control was horrible.

Alone, hiking the Appian Way outside Rome,  I lost all sight in my left eye My blood glucose was extremely low when the blood vessels on my retina burst.  After two years of laser treatments, during which I lost sight in both eyes several times, sight was  restored in my right eye.

I still see out of my right eye and spend every day designing homes for people who want to be connected with their land in the hot humid south. I'm healthier now than ever. An insulin pump, a continuous glucose monitor, and regular hard exercise have enabled me to keep my A1c around 6. Most importantly Jane, my wife of 30 years, is the world's best cook. We eat only delicious, fresh, good food  and never anything "diabetic".  

I am running the Boston Marathon to commemorate 50 years of being a type 1 diabetic. I am now planning on being around to encourage our grandchildren, raise money for a cure of diabetes, rebuild our recession damaged architectural practice, run a marathon, and  receive Joslin’s 75 year Metal.

Joslin Diabetes Center, a teaching and research affiliate of Harvard Medical School,  is a one-of-a-kind institution on the front lines of the world epidemic of diabetes — leading the battle to conquer diabetes in all of its forms through cutting-edge research and innovative approaches to clinical care and education. 

At Joslin every person is dedicated to realizing our vision of a world without diabetes and its complications through a relentless pursuit of our mission:

To improve the lives of people with diabetes and its complications through innovative care, education, and research that will lead to prevention and cure of the disease.
