Eric Church, unshaved legs, and evidence of the guinea pig


Carefree childhood erased.
Constant monitoring replaced.

It's a line I wrote as part of a piece I delivered to a room full of 700 people in Charlotte, North Carolina last week.
But those are not just carefully crafted words, they are a reality - for my daughter, Lucy, and millions of others who face the daily challenges of living with Type 1 Diabetes.

The JDRF Hope Gala will be a forever memory for me.  I wish you could have been there.  For fun I thought I would share the behind the scenes story and my brush with a celebrity {wink, wink}.
