On January 19, 2016, our 18 month old son, Trace, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). After weeks of exhibiting extreme thirst, which we attributed to teething, Trace became very lethargic and could barely move or hold his head up to drink from a cup. After taking him to his pediatrician’s office, we were told to take him to the ER immediately. Trace had a blood sugar of 1,000 (his normal goal range is 100-200) and he could have lost his life had we waited any longer. The diagnosis of Type 1 has forever changed our son and our family. We have committed ourselves to helping other children and families.
