Just a moment of your time to tell you about a remarkable young lady......
At the age of 2 1/2 years old, Madison went to the pediatrician with what her parents knew to be a peanut allergy. While there, they were asked if there was anything different about Madison or any other symptoms that she might be having. Madison's mother had noticed that she was having excessive thirst and, at that time, Madison's grandmother was helping to take care of the kids and also noticed that she had excessive thirst and was losing weight; she was also urinating frequently. The doctors ordered blood work that same day. After the test results came through the next day, Madison's parents received the news that her glucose levels were over 600 and that more blood work was needed. The endocrinologists came and explained that Madison has Type 1 diabetes. They explained that her pancreas does not produce enough insulin and that there is no cure. Needing to have her sugar checked every time she eats and to receive a needle every time she eats are what this young lady and many other children like Madison go through. Her parents wondered if she would ever have a normal life, facing something that has no cure. Now 6 1/2 years later at the age of 9, Madison plays softball and basketball and is active in soccer. And I still cry every time my daughter crosses the finish line. Both my husband and I are so very proud of this remarkable young lady, our daughter Madison.
