Today is World Diabetes Day and I ask that you please take time to think about this disease and maybe to consider what you could do to help with research, perhaps donate to help find a cure. My daughter, Allison was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on March 23, 2014 and we nearly lost her, she was very lucky that Dr. Crawford at Carroll County Hospital recognized the disease and promptly transported her to University of Md Hospital where she received the continued care that she needed. Type 1 diabetes probably isn't what you think it is, do some research, it is life changing. I am so prooud of Allison for being strong and for defying diabetes to change her anymore than it has too. She has been so brave through all of the injections of insulin, she has diligently learned about the disease, adjusted to her pump and CGM. Please take time to pray for a cure! I ask my family and friends to please continue praying for Allison, without you 2014 would have been a much more difficult year than it already was. A special thanks to my Mom who stood by us through the hospital stays, the long nights of crazy scary low BS numbers and for helping us through the emotional and scary high BS numbers. We are so ready for 2015 and all of the changes to come. I love you Allison!!! Thank you again family and friends! Please feel welcome to share this post to help spread awareness.
