Hello friends and family,
As some of you know, our son Davis was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in May 2022. He's 15 years old and while he has been managing well and we are very proud of him, it has been a challenging time for him and us.
We were very fortunate to be connected to the amazing CHEO diabetes team and have had wonderful support while we learned about the disease and how to care for it.
While the whole thing really sucks, we do feel lucky he was diagnosed in a time where technology allows us to see his blood glucose levels any minute of any day, and we are looking forward to the one year anniversary where Davis will become eligible for an insulin pump. It's been 100 years since the discovery of insulin – a miraculous change in life expectancy for millions of people around the world, and we look forward to the many other discoveries about this disease that can happen in our lifetime.
That’s why we are taking the #LaceUpYourWay challenge this September! Every dollar we raise, helps the millions of Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes and supports the work led by Diabetes Canada in education, support services, advocacy and diabetes research.
Please show support by helping us reach our team goal or by joining our team to fundraise and move alongside us.
