This past weekend (March 14th, 2009) was the Northwestern Pennsylvania chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's annual "Beach Ball Gala" to help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Olivia was choosen to be this year's "Fund A Cure Kid". We had members of JDRF (Chris Britt and Tom Balos) come to our house to interview us and to take video of Olivia. Parts of the video included how we manage her diabetes, blood sugar checks, receiving an insulin shot, counting carbs, playing (exercise), etc. I also gave them some pictures of Olivia that they also included in the video. The video turned out well and I would like to share it with all of you. The Gala had an awesome turn-out. This year's Honorees were Tim and Lisa NeCastro - supporters since 1997. They were responsible for forming Erie PA's first walk team (with Erie Insurance) and currently that team helps raise over $30,000 annually. Please help us find a cure by visiting www.jdrf.org and place a donation today!!
