THE STORY:

  
  On January, 13th, 2015 my husband, Nick was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Insulin is a hormone needed to allow sugar (glucose) to enter cells to produce energy. Since my husband’s diagnosis he did a complete change in his diet. He is very strict and rarely cheats. He is currently still in the honeymoon period of diabetes, this means his pancreas still produces some insulin. I never knew how tough this disease was until my husband was diagnosed. I am constantly reading all labels on the food and counting carbs when cooking food for him.   


 I believe there will be a day when my husband will no longer have to count carbs or worry about if he’s ate too much or too little. If my husband can wake up every morning and give himself a shot and prick his finger 4x a day then there is no reason I can’t run 13.1 miles for him and everyone else with this disease. My son Nicholas and I will be both racing in efforts to raise money for JDRF.  My husband's my rock! He wakes every morning and doesn’t complain. I believe one day there WILL be a cure and with the help of your donation we’re one step closer to finding one!    Courtney
