Why we fight so hard
Our daughter Veronica
In January 2006, my previously perfectly healthy daughter, Veronica, got what seemed to be the flu. By the time we realized that something was horribly wrong a few days later, she was unable to move, stand, or talk. She was diagnosed with type 1 and spent a week at Hershey Medical Center. Those memories still are fresh in my mind while I watch her dance classes and other activities that she enjoys. We fight for her, and hope that a cure will some day be found.
