When I was diagnosed with type 1 a couple of years ago, I felt like I was so sick that I could never recover. When I look back, I know that I’m lucky to be alive. I’m lucky to have access to what I need to continue being alive.
Not everyone is and that hurts my heart. Last year, the Spare a Rose, Save a Child initiative started. With this effort, bloggers with diabetes (myself included) encourage their readers to buy just one less rose for Valentine’s Day and donate that to a wonderful organization called, Life for a Child.
I’m a little later on posting this than I’d like, but I doubt you’ve bought roses yet anyway. I’m also sure that I can’t say anything better than what’s already been said by the other people on this list.
Even if you don’t (or can’t) donate, please at least check out the website and share it because you might know someone who can help.
