I'm Laurie

and Cody is my #1!

My son was diagnosed with Type 1 while in middle school. Neither I nor his father knew of any relatives, current or distant which might explain this. We are so grateful that insulin pumps came along when they did, making it possible to live an almost normal life. He just graduated from college! I am so, so proud of him! Perhaps some day soon this disease will be extinct. I felt so guilty for not SEEING how he was wasting away in front of our eyes until we caught on. I do hope future generations will not have to suffer from this, but am so grateful for a technological solution to constant painful injections.
