My late-husband was diagnosed with diabetes at age 8 and he was also very brittle. I knew absolutely nothing about diabetes when we met but my education was "by fire" as they say. The hypoglycemic episodes, the "evil twin," seizures. It could be a nightmare, but his attitude was incredible and our lives were turned completely around when, at age 43, he received a kidney and a pancreas from a family who had suffered the unthinkable: the loss of their daughter. Their generosity allowed us freedom neither of us had ever known. His pancreas was still going strong when the kidney began to fail after 14 years. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with lung cancer just days before he passed. It's safe to say, we lived those 14 years to the fullest. One of his greatest pleasures was cooking. He could finally eat what he wanted after all those years and cheesecakes were his greatest masterpieces. I hope anyone reading this will help this family save their young daughter. Help give her the life she has coming to her. At 19, just imagine what lies ahead for her...the food, the adventures, the fun; her education. Please help.
