A special request.

Today as I walked along US17 I passed a schoolyard and the children and their teacher came over to the edge of the field to see me. I crossed the road to their side and told them my story. One of them was diabetic. Later in the day when school was out she and her mother came to pay me a visit. Her mother asked that I not forget the type-1 diabetics in my writings. To that end I will pass on this special request from a concerned mother. My hope is to encourage those with the means to give will choose an organization and donate for research to help the children as well as adult "type-1" diabetics find cures for this global disease.
Please. You can make a difference.

And pardon my poor writing skills...

Thank you so much for mentioning the type 1 diabetic children. I have two grandchildren with this constant disease and my heart goes out to all the children and parents affected by it. God bless you and your sweet dog on your journey. Brenda Battles-Reynolds
