From Rachel Wyatt, Miles’ AMAZING mom!
About once a week, our son Miles starts a sentence “When they find a cure for diabetes…”— for him, it is the grand possibility. It’s bigger than Disneyland, bigger than X Box, bigger than all the gift giving occasions combined. At nearly 6 years old—having just gone 4 years since his diagnosis—living with type one is all he can remember, but still a cure is on his mind. The burden of the carb counting, the pump changes, the calculations, and the finger checks—which we figure number about 17,500 thus far—are always with him day and night.
As does Miles, we remain ever hopeful and ever vigilant for the day when the cure is found. But we also know that while they are funding a cure, JDRF is working on type one prevention and making life better for those—like Miles—that have it.
Here’s where you come in. We’re participating in our 4th Walk to Cure Diabetes, which is taking place in Austin at The Domain on October 27 starting at 9:00 am. As “Team Miles for Miles” we come together to raise money towards the cure, but also in solidarity with Miles. We let him know that we are all there for him, and trust us… he totally gets it.
So we ask you to do one of these:

A huge THANK YOU to you and all of our sponsors for your your contributions: AutoNation Toyota South Austin, Athena Montessori Academy, Elite Martial Arts, Snap Kitchen, and Jump! Gymnastics.
