Spare a Rose.

I’ve been writing this website for almost twelve years.  The support, advice, and camaraderie I’ve found in the diabetes online community has made the last twelve years with type 1 diabetes among my healthiest and most successful.  The supply of insulin carefully tucked away in my fridge, along with access to an excellent medical team and the financial means to manage my disease, keep me alive.

I’m lucky.  In a lot of ways.

Today is my birthday.  The greatest gift I can have is another year of life, and I don’t take that for granted.  If you’ve found hope, or support, or joy, or friendship, or love in the diabetes online community, I’d really appreciate it if you would consider donating to the IDF’s Life for a Child campaign through Spare a Rose.  If you aren’t able to donate, would you mind sharing the donation link?

Flowers die.  Children shouldn’t.  Every small donation helps save a child.

    Today is your birthday? It was my mom’s birthday too; she was born 1911 and left us at just past her 92nd birthday. She was not diabetic but tried to help me cope with mine, though not always wisely because of “old wives tales.”

  2. I donated today. Sheryl said either I get the donation made or I had to go find a new place to rest my head. She was serious. It’s done.

    The donation I mean it’s done. Not my pillow, the donation is done.
