world diabetes day

diabetes, family

Today is World Diabetes Day. As you may already know, diabetes is something that has changed our lives over the past year. I’ll write more later this week about that as we near the one year mark of Aubrey’s diagnosis.

Diabetes is an chronic, auto-immune disease that affects nearly 24 million Americans. Of that, as many as three million have type 1 diabetes, which is Aubrey’s diagnosis.

We have great hope for a cure. Tons of research is going into finding a cure for diabetes. Our doctors are confident that a cure will be found during Aubrey’s lifetime. And we’re praying for it to be even sooner than that!

There are lots of ways for you to get involved in the fight against diabetes. JDRF or the American Diabetes Associate are great places to start.

Do you have or do you know someone that has diabetes? Let us know in the comments below…and we can join together to fight for a cure.
