A question for those of you who have dealt w/ diabetes for a long time…
As some of you know, I did the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk last weekend. It was a great thing to do. I’ve had some breast issues that have been resolved quickly and feel that the new tests, etc… helped me personally, and so – I walked – and raised some money ($1,770 – woo-hoo!!).
Diabetes is now a huge part of my life. My question is, do you support one of the above groups (JDRF/ADA) or both?
I’m certainly not a juvenile – although my sons think that I act like one at times… I don’t have bunches of money (I work at a church) but I would like to support one, or both – or whatever. What are your feelings about the two groups? Nicole, Kerri and Shannon did the JDRF Walk in Providence, RI this morning.
For those of you dx’d as children, my hat is off to all of you – and even more so, to your parents. I was reading Nicole’s post on TuDiabetes about the old (80’s) methods of lancing and feeling extremely grateful that I didn’t have to use some of that stuff. I just don’t know how you did it – well, yeah – I do know how you did it – no choice, so you did it.
Next year – I’ll walk for diabetes, somewhere.
