This Sunday my family drove 2 hours to walk 1.3 miles for a cure. But it wasn't to a JDRF walk to cure diabetes. In fact, this walk wasn't for diabetes at all . It was to support our friend Dean's valiant fight with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).
Having type-1 diabetes in our lives has changed so many things. One positive change that we've seen is that it's made our little Cassie much more compassionate for others who have similar challenges. With such a dark cloud like diabetes looming over our every day lives, it's important to notice the silver linings too.
