One Dream Gala, JDRF || 2017
“We dream of one day finding a cure. But, dreaming is not enough. We must do more than dream. We must make our dream a reality. And we must have the courage to pursue it.” This weekend was a dream, and I am forever grateful for the unconditional love and support I have from those around me. The last 17 years would have been a different uphill battle without the patience and help you all provide me through my daily highs and lows – pun intended. Through the finger sticks, the frustrating doctor visits and pump failures, and the unexpected trips to the ER, a day doesn’t go by that I’m not pinching myself to remember how lucky I am to have my team - my family and friends - next to me to always remind me I’m not alone. A very special thank you to my handsome man, who continues to bend-over-backwards to make sure I am my healthiest and happiest. Thank you for also giving up your sleep when I keep you up all night with the many annoying sounds the third wheel in our relationship brings to the table – my CGM. Thank you for always reminding me that I have the strength to “pursue it.” .
Thank you to the team at Open Road Auto in #Manhattan, and W. Rodman Ryan, Founder and CEO, and Michael Morais, President. Your support, and your personal involvement and story gave me great hope that one day we will see a world without #T1D.
