At Walk of Hope last year I did a presentation entitled "Faces of Hope".

I had people with type 1 diabetes email me pictures of them or their child along with name, age, age at diagnosis, where they live, basically whatever info they felt comfortable sharing. I had about 20 people send me pictures.

My purpose for doing this was to show those in attendance that this isn't only about my son, but also the millions of others who live with this disease every day and to show that those affected come in all different sizes, ages, and colors.

I will be doing the presentation again this year and I would love to have more than 20 people. So, if you would like you or your child to be a part of Faces of Hope this year email me a picture along with whatever information you would like others to know about you or your child.

Email them to : pennylane5001@mchsi.com

Thank you!!!
