My daughter, Shannon Lionetta was diagnosed January 4, 2011 with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. The picture I have attached is from the day we brought Shannon home from Dartmouth after several days of being hospitalized and hoping she was going to pull through and come home. This disease was a life changing event for Shannon. Shannon has previously attended Camp Carefree except for last year when funds were low and we missed the deadline to sign up. Last night Shannon looked at me with tears in her eyes after looking at the 2014 brochure and said "Momma, I really want to go this year." I immediately told myself that I would make it happen and not let her down again this year. Camp Carefree has been very helpful to Shannon in managing this disease, connect with other kids and counselors who all live with diabetes and share many of the same experiences. ADA Camp Carefree has a mission to provide fun-filled, educational camping experience and help them to develop and maintain active, healthy lifestyles. She meets friends who understand what it is like to be a kid with diabetes and compare the daily roller coaster life. I want Shannon to know that she has support and that she has people behind her who want her to know that diabetes may be the rule, but is not the exception. I am asking for all my friends and family to help me in support of my daughter Shannon Lionetta, to be able to attend this very much needed camping experience. No amount is too small, just need your help to make this happen for Shannon.
