Our daughter Mia was suddenly diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at only two years old. Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is a genetic, auto-immune disease in which the pancreas stops creating insulin to break down sugar, resulting in a life-long dependence on synthetic insulin. Mia was a trooper during her stay at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Sanai Hospital. She has done an amazing job adjusting to this new lifestyle. As you can imagine, this diagnosis has changed all of our lives. To stay alive, people with T1D must take multiple insulin injections daily or continually infuse insulin through a pump. Each day, we have to carefully monitor food and insulin intake for Mia. Constant maintenance is vital to avoid high or low blood sugar reactions that can be life-limiting or life threatening.

The goal of this fundraiser is to offset the costs of expensive medication, hospital bills and medical supplies needed on a daily basis.
