"Friends United is a grassroots organization that began as a small group of friends with a mission - to help fund research that will significantly improve the lives of people with juvenile diabetes and eliminate the disease through a cure.Current research is very promising, and the realization of our dream of a cure is on the horizon." (www.friends-united.org)
Friends United was started by my ambitious Mom and her amazing group of friends after my brother was diagnosed at the age of 7. At such a young age it was difficult for my brother and his body to adjust to this disease. More and more I hear of children, teens, and adults diagnosed with some type of Diabetes. Everyone knows someone that has been affected.
My brother, Josh-Type I Diabetic. Healthy, happy, and extremely handsome thanks to advanced medical technology.
Josh's pump. A little damaged but keeps his insulin and blood sugar level. Since this picture he got a new pump. Check out the Chicago Bulls sticker-way to represent!
