Faces of Hope

Last year at Walk of Hope I did a presentation entitled Faces of Hope. I had about 20 people send me pictures and information to use.

The purpose of the presentation is to show those in attendance that this is not just about my son, but also the millions of others who deal with this disease on a daily basis. Also, that those affected by type 1 diabetes are all different sizes, colors, and ages.

I will be doing the presentation again this year at my walk. So, once again, I'm asking for your help.

If you would like to participate please email me a picture of you (or your child) along with whatever identifying information you are comfortable with sharing (name, age, age at diagnosis, where you live, any interest or hobbies)

And, if you participated last year and would like me to use the same picture and info this year please let me know. If I don't hear from you I won't use your picture again this year. And, if you don't remember if you sent me a picture or not last year ask me and I'll let you know.

I would love to have more than 20 people participate this year.

Email your pictures and info or any questions to: pennylane5001@mchsi.com

I'll send you a photo of Charlie. Looking for an action shot (testing, injecting, etc.) or just a normal photo?

Have I done this? Let me know if I didn't and I'll send a picture of Brendon.

Hey Penny,
I'm way behind on blog reading, and I just now saw this. I think I sent you stuff last year, let me know if I didn't.
