BENEFITING: Beyond Type 1
ORGANIZER: Beyond Type 1
Angus was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes right after his 4th birthday. He was sent by ambulance halfway across the state to Seattle Children's, where his blood glucose reached almost 700. We almost lost him.
We are now approaching the 3 year anniversary of his diagnosis-- that's almost half his life spent battling this disease. The further we get into this diagnosis, the further he gets from any memory before this disease. He's 7 years old and cannot remember what it's like to eat a meal without lancing his skin, testing his blood glucose, carb counting, and injecting insulin.
We grieve for life before diabetes-- We don't sleep. We have drained savings accounts and maxed out credit cards just to pay for his life-saving medication. Everyday is a constant battle to keep our child alive. We are not satisfied with insulin pumps and glucose monitors. We won't stop making noise until there's a cure. Thank you for your donation!
