Bake Sale

For those of you who my son, Christian, is type 1 and has been for 5 years.  He was diagnosed when he was 11 and he is now 16.  Each year around this time the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) has a walk around the Scera Park in Orem.  I write a walk letter for him and ask for donations that we give the the JDRF in the hopes that someday soon they will find a cure for this horrible disease and other families wont have to go through what we go through and what Christian goes through each and every day. 

This year I decided to do something different and do a bake sale.  I have a friend that is the Shoe Fairy and I teamed up with her and her monthly fundraising yard sales that she has.  I made 15 dozen cupcakes and sold them for 1$ each.  I made a pretty good profit to donate this year.  I am so glad that I teamed up with her. 

I did get a few comments from people about doing cupcakes for something that has to do with diabetes.  I would have to explain to them that Christian has type 1 which is different from type 2.  With type 1, you control it with shots not with diet and exercise like you do with type 2.  I told them that Christian could have sugar sometimes but when he did have sugar, he would have to take a shot because his body didn't produce the insulin like other people because his pancreas has stopped working.
