JDRF Walk — October 11th @ The Legends

One of my co-workers, and fellow diabetic, sent me this video today. I plan to attend the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk on Saturday. I couldn’t make it to the last one, so now it’s time to make up for it.

Diabetes is silent, yet deadly sometimes. I work with diabetes patients, and when I see a medical history of a child who’s already blind it makes me want to cry. But it also gives me a reason to keep doing my job, and to join any initiative to find a cure.
