No words can express the pain the DOC is feeling right now. One of our most inspiring, genuine, and sweetest members, Meri, who blogs at Our Diabetic Life has lost her husband to cancer this weekend. She has four boys, three of whom have type 1 diabetes.
I and many others can’t wrap our heads around how this family is supposed to manage. There is a huge emotional impact coupled with a financial and physical one that will be very heavy to bear.
I find myself wanting to help but don’t know how. All I’ve been able to do is donate to help cover the costs associated with this family’s tough journey. I blog to let you all know about this family and to let you all know that there is a way to help if you feel so moved.
Please send your prayers, thoughts, positive vibes and energy, financial donation-anything you can to help.
I find having type 1 diabetes a lot of work-just for myself. This woman is going to have to manage her three son’s diabetes and deal with the loss of her soul mate and partner in parenting at the same time. I simply can’t fathom this. I cry just thinking about it.
But knowing Meri through her blog, I’ve found out that she and her family is the definition of strength and grace and faith under pressure. We don’t ever want them to feel alone on this tough road ahead. We’ve come to know them as part of our DOC family.
So again, if you can help, here is the link.
I’ll be back soon with blogging. Right now, it doesn’t feel right to write about anything else.
Thanks for reading.
