THE STORY:

Bill Reinhardt wrote -

T1D (Type 1 diabetes) is a lethal, life-altering autoimmune disease that cannot be prevented and for which there is currently no cure. On December 8-9 I will be playing in a Wiffle Ball tournament to benefit SLAMT1D, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to changing the game for people living with T1D. Their mission is to fund and aid T1D camp organizations, camps and camperships; educational programs; peer-to-peer support; and mentoring opportunities for T1Ders of all ages.

 

To put things into perspective, if someone is diagnosed with T1D at age 5, he or she will have to administer roughly 24,000 insulin injections just to reach the age of 18.  That is 5 shots per day. Now, add that number to the nearly 40,000 finger pricks (that's right, another needle) that the same 18-year old has inflicted to check his or her blood sugar levels. These are just two of many aspects of living that people with T1D have to focus on to manage a “normal” life...but despite everything a T1Der or caregivers do, life is never normal.
