Sawyer Hopson's Lemonade Stand
Hello! Thank you for stopping by. June 25, 2019 marks the one year anniversary that Sawyer has been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It's been a year that we have overcome many obstacles.
Sawyer was 21 months old at diagnosis, and we were heartbroken to learn that his tiny little body was struggling to live. A toddler can be challenging on most days, but we had to learn how to take care of him around the clock. Those early days and nights were really really hard. Stressful and exhausting. We have come so far in a year and we want to acknowledge our achievements. Sawyer is thriving! His A1c is fantastic, we use the latest available technology to monitor his glucose and administer his insulin. Sawyer lives a "normal" life just like any other 2 year old, except he is closely monitored to maintain a healthy level of his blood glucose. Some day when Sawyer is old enough he can go away to Camp and we can seek comfort knowing that someone who is highly knowledgeable and trained can monitor his health needs. A chance for him to be a normal kid and a chance for us to have a tiny break and know that he is safe.
We choose to do this fundraiser to mark his one year anniversary "Diaversary" to raise funds that will send children living with Diabetes to summer camp. This gives the chance for these amazing brave children to experience a carefree fun camp experience under the watchful eye of trained staff while giving their parents and caregivers a much deserved break from the day and night care.
If you could contribute toward this cause we would be so grateful. We truly believe that this is a wonderful opportunity for children living with diabetes and gives them a chance to be independent and learn life skills and most of all to just be a kid! We are hosting a lemonade stand at our house on June 23 from 9:30 am - 11:30 am, please stop by. If you are unable to stop by you can always make a small donation by clicking on the "Donate Now" button on this page.

from our family
love Jenna & Russ
