My name is Michelle. I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, friend, and last (but certainly not least) a pancreas!
I have been happily married to my amazingly talented and supportive husband for the past 10 years! We've been through more than we could have ever imagined since our wedding day -- both good and bad! No matter the circumstances, we've always pulled through "for better, for worse" and "in sickness and in health".
On October 31, 2005, our oldest daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 2 years. In the 5 years since her diagnosis our family has learned a lot about type 1 diabetes and how to cope and manage with the day-to-day trials of this disease.
My hope is to use this blog to share our story to connect with others who understand and to raise awareness about type 1 diabetes and the need for a CURE!!!

I'd love to hear from you!!!
