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.

Six Weeks Til The Walk To Cure Diabetes

Six weeks until the JDRF TELUS Walk To Cure Diabetes

This is a date bigger than Christmas at our house right now!

"Rowan's Recruits" is $294 away from our $1000 fundraising goal. All monies go directly to the Juvenille Diabetes Research Foundation to fund further research to a cure.

What will you do in six weeks?

In six weeks Rowan will have had to do 252 finger pokes to test her blood glucose.... and will have been subjected to a minimum of 42 insulin injections. That number will jump dramatically if she catches a cold, flu or other virus, potentially bringing the number of insulin injections to 84. Possibly more.

There is absolutely no minimum donation. Every $5 or $10 builds up quickly, and you NEVER know which mysterious donation could potentially be the one to help the good folks at JDRF stumble onto a cure.

Please..... my precious L'il Bones and our family really, really, REALLY need a cure.

If you can find it in your heart to contribute, every donation is GRATEFULLY appreciated. I really don't want to outlive my little girl.

Thank you..... please feel free to visit our fundraising page. If you have any questions, I'm more than willing to answer them.
