Sydney's Fulfillment Fund

Our little baby Sydney has just been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, which is a very rare diagnose at this age. She is faced with a lifetime of blood checks every four hours and daily insulin shots. As many of you can imagine this has been quite a shocking diagnosis, as it is a heredity disease we currently don't know anyone in either of our families with Type 1 diabetes, so this is all very new to us.

We are faced with so many new expenses now and down the road that we currently aren't prepared for yet. Not to mention all the challenges that we are facing today and in the future. We don't yet know how to dig in and get started under our current financial circumstances, so we are asking all of our friends and family if there is any help you can provide we are so grateful. Whether it is a dollar, a card, a facebook post. We are so happy to hear from everyone. It's only been a week and we are behind in work and bills, so we just can't imagine what financial stress this will continue to put on us now having to work even more to prepare for her future, as well as, having to now micro manage her daily care. We just simply don't know where to start this very minute. We were made aware of camps, classes and daycare that we are currently in no finacial position to meet these needs. : (

We've so far received such amazing well wishes from friends and family that have or know someone with type 1 and have provided us information. We are also so grateful for the support and well wishes that everyone gave us while we were in the PICU this past week.

We will be creating a Facebook Page for Sydney with pictures and updates, so hopefully we can be engaged and part of this new community. I have 23 years of non profit experience and now have the opportunity to use that experience to help my daughter's cause by getting involved with research and new technology to make her life as easy as possible. We have left our tears at the hospital and we are prepared to give her the most normal and fulfilling life possible and we ask that all our friends and family help us going forward do the same for Sydney. She is such an amazing and happy little girl. We are looking forward to this challenge God has given us. We are so grateful to have such amazing support from all our friends and family, that we can't begin to thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts!

Thank you all again for your love and support!
