Lake Michigan

WHY

It’s for my Uncle Wally; for my family; for everyone living with type 1 diabetes; for all of the caregivers of type 1 diabetics; for the parents waking up in the middle of the night to check glucose levels; for the spouses, siblings, parents, and caregivers staying up all night because of a scare; for the researchers working tirelessly; for the type 1 diabetics not sure about tomorrow or the next minute, but doing what they do best: KEEP GOING.
