There are quite a few organizations that offer that ‘dream of a lifetime’ to those who have ‘life threatening’ conditions, does your child, with diabetes fit into that category? Someone wrote to me yesterday and stated that they felt they certainly should be allowed to apply, as diabetes has stopped them from many things. What do you think?
My answer to this questions would go something like this: Whether or not someone is ‘deserving’ of those once in a lifetime trips, is up to each organization granting the wish. They are the controllers of the money and they set the parameters of who is allowed to be awarded such a trip. If they choose to grant such a trip rests solely on their decision.
But it does lend itself to the question if they know how serious T1 diabetes is? For that matter, does the world-at-large know how serious it is? There are only a finite number of trips allowed each year…….should those with T1 be included?
So I ask you today to chime in on the topic. What are your thoughts?
