I make no exaggeration when I say this but Help A Diabetic Child (HADC) saved my life when I was in high school. In high school, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, but for a long time I went undiagnosed while trying to keep up with the daily grind of school, homework, and high school football. I had no idea of the symptoms of type 1 diabetes and neither did anyone around me. I summed it up to I just wasn’t eating enough or something minor. It wasn’t until I got blood work done that I realized I was in trouble. I spent three days in the hospital trying to get my body back to normal, the doctors themselves said if I had waited just a short time longer to come to the hospital that I would be dead. After I got out of the hospital, I spent a short time away from football before I was finally able to return where I started to learn how to get some control of my body regarding high and low blood sugar levels and how to treat them. I discovered Help A Diabetic Child through our local YMCA where I happened to meet a few Mothers whose children had type 1 diabetes. They helped me get in touch with Tami at HADC.
Being mostly raised by a single mother, money was hard to come by for diabetic https://zacasinosonline.co.za/real-money-online-casinos/ medical supplies and insulin, which were crucial if I wanted to get my body back to where it should be and to stay alive. Tami stepped in and would often cover insulin and medical supply bills that were almost $3,000 dollars which was something I thought was unfathomable and I also knew my family could never come up with that kind of money. It is quite literally because of Tami and Help A Diabetic Child that I am still alive today and happily married while expecting my 1st child. While I no longer live in South Florida, I do my best to keep in touch with the people from there and my only wish is to someday pay it forward like how it was paid forward for me!
Thank you for everything!
