Touched by Diabetes- My Family

Diabetes is one of those diseases that no one chooses, yet if diagnosed, one must make many choices most of us will never face. Contrary to some popular belief Diabetes isn't "caused" by eating too much sugar. Several members of my family, including my daughter, have been diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes. This is commonly called Juvenile onset Diabetes because it is usually diagnosed early in life. Type 1 Diabetes isn't brought on by being overweight or poor lifestyle choices. In my daughters case she was only eight years old when we discovered that she would have to take insulin shots and manually regulate her blood sugar levels for the rest of her life.

Because of Diabetes, my daughter will not be able to get her pilot's license, but due to extensive research Diabetes isn't the "death sentence" it once was. However, it can still be very debilitating and much more research is needed. The long term effects of living with diabetes, even with the best care available, today often leads to loss of vision, amputation of limbs and early failure of internal organs. Research costs money. That is why I am dedicating this 50/50 event, my birthday celebration, to raising money for Diabetes. Although it isn't an Aviation Related Charity, Diabetes is an integral part of my family's life.
