As I was driving yesterday I had an incredible sorrow in my heart. I AM sorry Carol is gone but my sorrow was that when she sat with Lee Ducat and others forming the JDF (Now JDRF) they had but one goal; to cure diabetes.
My sorrow was that this powerhouse of a woman creating this incredible organization that surely has changed the face of the diabetes world; yet–still, she left this world without seeing her one dream realized.
Now surely many great things have happened and truly many advancements have been made but on this day; let’s re-examine our dream and make sure we find the very thing Carol wanted for her loved ones, and we want for our loved ones…..A cure.
Let’s focus and drive forward…….for Carol…….for our kids. We appreciate and need all of these fascinating management tools but the ultimate goal is a cure. And always should be. Let’s never forget that.
