Cure Type 1 Diabetes

THE STORY:

Let's face it. Most of us wake up everyday and never think about what we put into our mouths. Sugar in our coffee? Yes please. Syrup on our waffles? Burger and fries? Brownie? Bagel? A slice from John's Pizzeria or a glass of Pinot Grigio at lunch? Sure, why not...and while you're at it, supersize it, too.

For my Dad and other type 1 diabetics, they HAVE to think about what they eat in order to live. They HAVE to monitor their blood sugar levels every day in order to live. They HAVE to give yourself insulin shots in order to live.

Even more terrible, if you happen to be diagnosed when you're a baby, then your mom or dad will give those shots for you. I mean...imagine giving shots to a 6 month old baby 5x times a day. Pricking their little tiny fingers with needles to draw blood to test sugar levels? Imagine trying to figure out a kid's blood sugar level when they are crying hysterically?

With every dollar raised for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, they get closer to seeing a cure. That's why I'm here. Let's see a cure in this lifetime. In my Dad's lifetime. In our lifetimes...It's SO possible.
