I Wear Gray For .....

I wear Gray for my daughter Nikki Tyler diagnosed at the age of 2 and half years old, still a baby. She should have been free to be just a toddler and to know a life that doesn’t consist of finger pricks and site changes. Nikki Tyler does not know life without diabetes. I hope that someday we can give that to her.

I wear Gray for my son Adam diagnosed 2 years after Nikki at the age of 14. Adam had his teen years interrupted by diabetes. Adam knew a life without diabetes, yet having lived with his sister knew what was to come. A major adjustment for any teenager.

I wear Gray for my son Patrick diagnosed 4 months after Adam at the age of 11. Patrick who after having his brother diagnosed with diabetes actually said “I wish I had Diabetes too”. Sadly that wish came true.

I wear Gray for my husband Diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 2 years ago, my wonderful husband who has been so committed to finding a cure for diabetes now finds himself included among those that need the cure.

As you can see I am wearing a lot of Gray!

I wear Gray for the many friends and family that have been touched by diabetes because I feel what they feel that it truly is our time for a cure.

Wearing Gray brings me comfort that one day I will be able to say “We helped find a cure for diabetes”.

Now it’s your turn “Why do you wear Gray”
