Sept 6 Walk for Zack

we have decided to do a 3K walk for diabetes research.
for those of you who may not know our little one Zack is a type 1 diabetic
we give him insulin 4 times a day & he checks his blood sugar at least 6 times a day
that's 10 pokes every single day of his life :(
help us, help others, find a cure :)


thank you so much for considering a donation

Hello!
My son Kurt was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 10. He is now 25 and doing well! So far Kurt has has about 53,100 pokes! We have to find a cure for these children! They can still live long happy lives with diabetes but lets find a way for them to live them without all of the pain, restrictions and possible complications.
I am off to make a donation now.
Hugs to Zack and your family.

Such an awesome thing your doing V =)

I sure feel for your boy. I have only been on insulin since March 2010 (4x's per day) and I know what a pain it is ... feeling like a pin cushion and not to mention the impact on your life. I cant even imagine the how this effect kids. I'm an adult and am having issues dealing with it myself. However, thankfully though there is insulin around in the meantime.

I will defiantly be donating =)
