So, I know that every one reading this blog should know who that girl is.
Or Hopie, as she is affectionately called in our house.
However, what every one reading this blog may not know is that this is also Hope.
This is Hopie with all of her shots.
That's right, Hope has Type 1, or Juvenile, Diabetes.
She was diagnosed in 1st grade almost 2 years ago!
She is now 8 years old and is loving life and overcoming her fears every day.
This year she transitioned to an insulin pump which was scary for her but has been an amazing experience for us all.
We are very proud of her and all that she is learning and doing daily!
To show our support for Hope, we are planning to walk with her again in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes on October 30th.
We all walked last year and it was such a great time for Hope and our family.
Here was our team...
So, needless to say we're very excited about this walk again this year.
We want you to be excited too and to consider helping us.
Please go here to find out more about how you can help:
(To Hopie, We could not be more proud of you! You have done things that have absolutely amazed us. Keep smiling "Munchkin" and know that we love you!)
