Sooooo, here we go...
As much as I complain and whine and cry about type 1 diabetes and how our life has changed, our daily challenges and the future bumps in the road that we may come upon, I AM THANKFUL!
I am thankful, that my daughter is alive,
I am thankful that there is insulin to keep my daughter alive,
I am thankful that I don't have to make a choice between buying insulin for Cara or food for my family.
I am thankful we live in a country that believes insulin is a necessity and not a luxury.
Many families around the world are not this lucky, they do not have this luxury and this breaks my heart.
It is estimated that there are 100,000 children with type 1 diabetes around the world who are in need of assistance to access insulin. Without insulin, these children will die within 1 week.Life for a Child Candy Hearts Collection
Candy Hearts has partnered with several businesses and is proud to present to you the Candy Hearts Collection of blue circle merchandise. These artisans have used their time, talents, and resources to create a practical line of products that I am certain you will enjoy. Some of these vendors do not have a direct connection to T1D, yet they recognize the global crisis that exists, and want to be a part of the solution.
Proceeds from this campaign will provide insulin and supplies to
children in need around the world:
