Walk to Cure Diabetes

In a few weeks there will be a walk to raise funds for a Cure for Diabetes. My daughter Tasha asked me to post about a friend of hers who will be walking for her daughter. Her daughter Alissa is 9 years old. She is trying to find sponsors for her walk. If you are interested in finding a cure for diabetes and supporting her please visit her donation site.

Childhood diabetes has not been an issue I have personally had to deal with. Anyone coming here have any experiences to share?


  1. Thanks for sharing this. We once had a 3 year old foster son who was type 1 diabetic...lots of hard work, but he was the cutest thing! i'll be sure to visit her page!

    One thing people seem to forget is those adorable type 1 diabetic babies and children grow up. I've been type 1 Diabetic for 15 years now. It was hard, especially during the rebellious teen years, but I have made it this far, thanks to the research that has been done to help improve our lives.

    I will definitely be checking out her page.
