About This Activity

Charlie is a two year old little boy who recently was diagnosed with Type 1 Childhood Diabetes! Please join us in being a voice for Charlie against T1D....

In our efforts of spreading Juvenile Diabetes Awareness and Charlie’s story we are seeking help for a Diabetic Alert Dog. This is all new to us, we have many unanswered questions as well, but we know that a D.A.D Dog would help us tremendously with Charlie’s high and lows. In our awareness efforts we want to remind everyone that diabetes knows NO age, gender, or race. We bypassed the simple and innocent signs that seemed normal to us; do you know the signs of Juvenile Diabetes? If not it’s time to do research, we remind you we have three older children who are NOT diabetic so it goes to show diabetes knows no judgment. On the other side, we are in need of a D.A.D Dog because if we missed the early on signs then could we miss something else, could someone else miss a sign of a high/low, and we could use extra measures to help save Charlie’s life.
