2019 Tour de Cure: Chicagoland

6 years.  Tyler has been doing Type 1 diabetes for 6 years.  


When you are first diagnosed with diabetes, people start to tell you that it's not so bad, at least you don't have cancer.  People tell you just to cut your carbs.  People start sending you recipes.  People share an article that says they have cured diabetes in a mouse, so in 5 years, they can cure your son too.

Tyler has been doing this for 6 years.  

Don't get me wrong, there have been massive improvements over the last 6 years.  We used to prick his finger 10 times per day and give him 5-6 shots per day.  With an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor, needle pokes are way down.  In the next 5 years, I expect an insulin pump that connects to the continuous glucose monitor, with intelligence built in to ease the burden of the user.  But we're not there yet.  


The ADA is the organization that has had the biggest impact on Tyler and diabetes.  This summer he went to his first overnight camp.  An experience that all kids should enjoy but kids with diabetes usually can't.  This year, we're dedicating our fundraising to diabetes camp because it was awesome, and more kids should be able to experience it.


Thanks to everyone who has suppored over the years.  We really appreciate all you have done.
