4 countries, 3 continents, 1 hope
Last year, we had the honour of walking with almost 200 people, most of which had no connection to diabetes or Elise. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever been a part of.
Of course, there is also Team Elise Canada. Put together by Fred's Mom and sister in Toronto. I love that we have people walking for Elise in my home and native land.
Not only that, but half a world away, Tiago was at it again... this time from his new home in Mozambique. Again, on the very same day we walked.
Keep in mind, there is really no JDRF presence in Portugal or Mozambique, this was all done by people on their own time.
I still cannot wrap my head around the love these people have shown us. And I don't think I can properly express just how much it means to me when people take the time to stand with us. On the days where diabetes has kicked me down, and I feel like I can't take one more minute of it, I think I will return to this post to bring me to my feet again.
Thank you to everybody who has given me the strength to keep fighting this fight for my daughter.
