Woman, Independent Parent, Artist, Advocate, Artifical Pancreas.... and EVERYTHING in between.

I am blessed to be parenting two beautiful girls, ages eight and eleven. My youngest nearly lost her life at age six (August 2010) to diabetic ketoacidosis: an often fatal consequences of undiagnosed type 1 diabetes. This is OUR journey: raw and sometimes, uncensored.

Thank you for visiting wishing good health and a cooperative pancreas to you and yours.

Please Support Us In Our Quest For A Cure.....

Well, it's official. Today we registered for the 2011 Telus Walk For A Cure benefitting the Juvenille Diabetes Research Foundation.

Did you know that there has been no new advancements since the introduction of insulin in 1921?
Did you know that the daily maintenance of Type 1 Diabetes is equivalent to the daily treatment of cancer?
Did you know that more people die globally each year from diabetes than HIV?

The LadyBugs & I have committed ourselves to raising $5000 and completing this 10k walk. Five fingerpokes (glucose tests) and two - three insulin injections simply SHOULD NOT be part of the childhood experience.

Please help us in our fundraising efforts.

Join us, Rowan's Recruits, on Facebook:

Our fundraising efforts may be viewed, and donations may be made online:

As her mother, I would move heaven and earth to facilitate the discovery of a cure. Please, if you would be willing, imagine for one moment that your child had been struck by this silent epidemic. Help me find a cure for my six year old daughter. Please.

If any of us in this house had ONE wish, you could be guaranteed that a cure would be what we'd ask for. That speaks volumes if a 10 year old and 6 year old would use their one and only wish to find a cure.

We hope to include you as one of "Rowan's Recruits".
