A year ago yesterday Peter Jr was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

The world seemed to stand still as we realized our lives would forever change.
Would we be able to continue our adventurous lifestyle or would all of that be over?

Would we still be able to climb mountains, surf, snowboard, hike, rock climb and dive as before?
We'll from day one, Pete has believed that he has T1D but it doesn't have him!
In the past year we have been as active and adventurous as ever.
Here he is snorkeling & free diving in NZ with his Family.
You can help him reach his goal to find a cure for T1D here:

To sit in silence at the shore, watch the waves and hear the surf, is to appreciate the very breath and heartbeat of the earth. - Doe Zantamata. #ouradventure #workplaycare #thankful #ocean #learning #saltlife
