My beloved granddaughter, Ella,was diagnosed with Type 1
Diabetes in December 2016 at the tender age of four. My heart breaks when Ella
says "It's not fair, Nana .Why me?"
The Type 1 survivor story is a tale of endurance. The
condition is an ongoing challenge that Ella will face for the duration of her
lifetime. Ella faces a daily grind of food deprivation, counting carbs and
measuring units of insulin. She will receive countless injections and needle
pricks into her delicate skin. Insulin is not a cure.
Most people know very little of Type 1 Diabetes. There are
few, if any, public figures to champion the cause and educate the public.
In order for research to progress, money is needed for
funding. In that spirit, I am asking you to support Ella by helping me reach my
goal of $2000.00 for 2018.Help turn Type 1 into type none so that in the future
no little person will be asking " Why Me".
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
