THE STORY:

 

Welcome to my fundraising page!  This year I will be running marathon #14 and have picked the NYC marathon as a member of Team Joslin.

As most of you know my daughter Katie was diagnosed on August 20, 2012 with Type One diabetes.   Every day she checks her blood sugar by pricking her finger.  She counts how many carbs are in her food and receives insulin.  She just got an insulin pump, but for the first 3 1/2 years she received her insulin by needle.  5-7 shots a day.  

Certain foods cause her blood sugar to rise.  This makes her vision blurry and it becomes hard to focus. She becomes grumpy and can't control it.  Exercise and excitement can cause her blood sugar to drop, sometimes dangerously low.  She never gets a day off from this disease.  

Founded in 1898, Joslin Diabetes Center is world-renowned for its deep expertise in diabetes treatment and research. Joslin is dedicated to finding a cure for diabetes and ensuring that people with diabetes live long, healthy lives. 

They develop and disseminate innovative patient therapies and scientific discoveries throughout the world. Joslin is an independent, non-profit institution affiliated with Harvard Medical School, and a federally-funded Diabetes Research Center.
