This post is in honor of anyone living with Diabetes. One of our most special employees, who is knee deep in fashion everyday, was Diagnosed with Type1 Diabetes when she was 24 years old. She now lives the everyday reality which is diabetes. With a cure seemingly so close, and better solutions for everyday living at the fingertips of science, it is hard to grasp why so many men, women, and children live this reality every day.
This was her photoshoot for winter, she styled it and froze her buns off to get some of these amazing shots. But this one I can see the story of a girl in wonder of her future with her new found condition.
We also want to remember all the kids placed in the hospital this holiday season because their care taker did not take their condition seriously. These kids do not only face diabetes everyday, but they also must deal with being placed in a new home so that their condition can be properly cared for.
