Thanks again for those who have donated to such a wonderful organization, the American Diabetes Association, an organization near and dear to  See more
Tom Hritzo

THE STORY:

Just over 2 years ago my son Matteo was diagnosed with Type I diabetes.  I can't imagine how he feels when his BG (blood glucose) is high or when his BG is low.  Or how the weather, feeling anxious, nervous or excited, angry, simply growing, hormones, and so on can mess with his BG level.  All I can do is help him juggle this life long management disease by checking BG levels and giving him insulin.  He is an athlete and a scholar.  He is handsome and silly.  He is loving and caring.  He is cool and smoove.  He is a great little brother, nephew, grandson, cousin and friend.  He is my everything!  He loved competing in his elementary school warrior dash and loves American Ninja Warrior.  So, why not have Dad compete in one AND most importantly raise money for a great cause?  I would like to set an example of (somewhat) of a healthy lifestyle and excercise to him by training for and completing this event.  Please conside donoting to this fundraiser, your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Also, take a look at the last photo...Matteo wrote it 4 days after he was diagnosed.  It says, "you will never beat me goldberg (some wrestler)", taped to a door with the band aids he use to want after pricking his fingers.  GOLDBERG = DIABETES.  MY HERO = MY MATTEO...

Peace and love big man...
