Meet my cousin Dylan!
This is Dylan! Dylan is 6 years old and just started 1st grade!! He is my cousin's son...making him my 2nd cousin. Dylan is a fun loving and extremely smart little dude. Every time I see him, he graces me with a hug and holds my hand.
Dylan is a Type 1 Diabetic...diagnosed at the age of 3...and this year...I'm walking in JDRF for him!
I asked him to name our team this year...he chose "Dylan's Chargers"- so I signed up as the Team Captain and am now leading the way to a fundraising goal of $500.
I have a few issues with JDRF as some of us in blog world have discussed over the past week. But Dylan is the reason I continue to support JDRF despite my own woes with the organization. I love being able to share this unique bond with him....even though it is T1- it is a bond...and it's something I cannot explain...we just connect when we are with each other.
So just to make it known...I'm walking to support my little charger Dylan this year for JDRF! Charge on!
