THE STORY:

Tracie Riggin wrote -

Sophie was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on January 28, 2016 at an early age of 3. We were in complete shock and scared for our sweet little girl. We didn't know a lot about Type 1 or how to care for someone with Type 1, let alone our child...our baby girl. While in the hospital, the ladies with the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi came to visit and brought Sophie a backpack (what we call our "go to bag") that had everything she needed to carry with us everywhere we went to ensure we would be able to take care of her while we were out doing everyday things...grocery shopping, running errands or just taking a walk.

Our fundraiser is to raise money for the Diabetes Foundation of MS to help the foundation with their mission of helping families cope with the emotions of a newly diagnosed family, of helping families with the emergency supplies if the need arises, and for the continuing lobbying efforts to promote community awareness, lobby for more funding for research, assistance and support of families affected by this disease.
