National Diabetes Awareness Month

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month

Do you know the warning signs of type 1 diabetes? They include one or more of the following and occur suddenly:

  1. extreme thirst
  2. frequent urination
  3. drowsiness/lethargy
  4. sugar in urine
  5. sudden vision changes
  6. increased appetite
  7. sudden weight loss
  8. fruity/sweet or wine-like odor on breath
  9. Heavy labored breathing, stupor/unconsciousness
Each year 15,000 children are diagnosed with type 1 - that's about 41 kids everyday. Our daughter was one of those 15,000 kids last year. We're trying to make a difference for Cassie and other children and their families who live with this chronic illness everyday.

This Saturday, November 14th, we are walking to cure diabetes. Please help by making a small donation (or large) by using the link below. We appreciate anything you can do to help. I pray a cure is found and our daughter and others can live a more normal life.

If you would like to donate to our family team, it's called "Cassie's Crew" and it's taking place in the state of Nevada. You can donate at the link below. Thank you so much.
