Sponsored Walk in aid of JDRF - Juvenile diabetes research foundation. Please support my son

My son Harry was diagnosed with type 1 when he was aged 2 in November 2010 he had DKA and spent a week in hospital with drips in both arms and legs. Having his blood tested every hour as his blood sugars were so high with his pancrease no longer producing insulin.

In order for us to stay positive and to encourage my son that he can have a full life even with him having 4 insulin injections a day for life and him having some days 9 to 10 blood tests a day and treatment for hypo and hyper we remain upbeat.

We are doing a sponsor walk on Sunday 30th September in aid of JDRF (midlands walk) if any one has a few coins spare for this much appreiciated we do a few things to raise money for JDRF and have raised around 650 so far to date.

www.justgiving.com/jennypotterphotography and also look at facebook and look at jenny potter photography charity fundraising events -jdrf.

My son is extremely brave and we are hoping all the money rasied will provide vital medical research so that newer treatments can be found and possibly a cure. I never tell my son there will be a cure as he will think by tomorrow he will not longer have hypo/hypers and all the other treatment he has. I just hope and pray for a brighter future for my precious son.
