World Diabetes Day – Got 5 Minutes?

The little boy, Christopher, in this video is not my grandson … but it is Nolan’s story, too.  Please, help find a cure and consider supporting JDRF (JDRF Canada) any way you can, or simply show your awareness by wearing blue today.

  1. Nancy–it made me cry. I almost lost my oldest son to another situation and so I know this pain. I can not stand for a child to hurt. I just can not stand it. They are on the road to a cure and I have hope for the near future. Hugs today and always!

    Thanks for the hugs, Anna. You’re right – they’re making great progress against this disease. It’s been a sort of “weepy” day, though. :)

  2. Nancy, what a beautiful video, but so heart wrenching!
    My husband’s youngest sister almost died from juvenile diabetes when she was 3. She’s now a mother of 2 young adults and manages her diabetes extremely well. She amazes me.
    I hope and pray your little Nolan will do well, and that a cure will be found in the near future.
    If that’s him on your sidebar, he and Christopher bear a striking resemblance to each other!

    Hi Kerri — yes, I was struck by that as well. :) Especially when Mom was tickling him…I have a video of Nolan and they even sound the same. :) Thanks so much for your encouraging comments — they really do mean a lot.

    They’re both beautiful boys :)
    Thanks for the link to the First Snowfall Project. I was going to come over and let you know I posted, but you beat me to it!

  3. Dearest Nancy, we have shared and you know how tenderly my arms wrap around you and Nolan. I am here at the lake, wraping my arms around my sister, Nancy. After a year and a half surviving horrific illness, in and out of hospitals and living with me, we now have her back in her home with gifts of prayful answered help. Each precious day is a gift. I lost my brother, way too young, to adult onset (Type 2) diabetes. Devoted to my sister, though now legally blind with huge mountains to cross, we will … we will. Thank you, dear one for sharing this huge message.

    Sending you and your sister huge hugs, Joey. I’m glad she is doing well. Thank you so much for your understanding and support. xo

  4. Nancy,
    What I did not mention, was that I told everyone at work about this, and my clients at the gallery. We are aware of this not for juvenile diabetes, but for adult diabetes with a former coworker, Jose. Either way, my own friend as a child and the co-worker we at work knew made it real. Friday was a special day of awarness here across the continent, in a gallery in San Francisco, that you opened our eyes to.
    Best regards,

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
