A Memorial For my Grandma Flossie...
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the ADA in support of great-granddaughter Riley.
When my parents and my Aunt Kathy told me that they wanted to have a Memorial Page for my Grandma Flossie to help raise funds for the ADA, I smiled.
Why in such a sad time? I realized that Grandma Flossie is still with me that she always will be with me, with us as a family.
Growing up she was always taking care of us and now here, in our darkest hour she is still trying to take care of us, of my Riley.
The ADA has held a close place to our hearts because my oldest, Riley was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Each year we participate in the Tour de Cure, which is a bike, run, walk event. We do this as a family! Flossie was always very supportive of us, in taking care of Riley and in our need to do something to help us get closer to a CURE!
We are coming up on the 10 year Anniversary of Riley's Diagnosis with Type 1. Crazy! We do the best we can to help keep Riley healthy and happy (I mean she is a pre-teen so that's hard for anyone.) They told us we would have a cure in 10-12 years, so I feel like we are so close! Every bit helps. Helps to make living with this disease a little more bareable.
Did you know that today alone over 4,100 people will be diagnosed and more than 30 million adults and children in the United States are living with this terrible disease.
When you donate, in lieu of flowers:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.
- You fund life-saving research.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes
