Kicking off fundraising season with MudLOVE bands!

By purchasing a MudLOVE band, we will also be donating $5.00 from each sale to Luke’s Lifesavers for JDRF for the One Walk in September! We work hard each year to raise money to give to JDRF for Type 1 Diabetes research to hopefully, ultimately find a cure. We hope & pray in Luke’s lifetime he will see the benefits of this hard work and will be able to throw away all of his needles, insulin, test strips, and everything else diabetes related.

Spent the next two months packing up fifteen… Continue reading JDRF Walk 2017.

Culver’s Cares Night.

We had our final fundraiser for the 2016 walk this week at our local Culver’s. It was simple. I contacted the general manager. We set up a date. I arrived with friends and family volunteers. We worked delivering food to tables, greeting customers at the door, and wiping the tables and chairs clean for three hours.… Continue reading Culver’s Cares Night.

What T1D IS.

Type 1 Diabetes makes you stronger. I vividly remember sitting down to write my Christmas cards in 2014 and thinking, “I’d do a Christmas letter, but nothing ever changes in our life!” I was sitting pretty comfortably with my husband of 12 years, our 10-year-old boy who hated getting in trouble and did everything he… Continue reading What T1D IS.

What T1D is NOT.

Type 1 Diabetes is not a direct sentence to eating only meat and veggies. Luke can eat anything he wants, within reason, just like before his T1D diagnosis. If he wants five tacos for dinner, he eats five tacos for dinner. (He is a 12 1/2 year old growing boy, after all!) If he wants ice… Continue reading What T1D is NOT.
