If You Liked Frozen’s ‘DO You Want to Build a Snowman”……..You Will LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!


Olaf 1Do You Want to be My FFL? (pronounced Fif El).  It represents the acronym Friends for Life.  The video attached is something that anyone with diabetes can relate.  It was written by Sarah Loebner, a very special young lady.

The introduction read at Friends for Life Conference was as follows:
She—-was diagnosed with T1 diabetes at age 9 1/2 in 2002. Presently pursuing a career as a Physician’s Assistant and she is the pure genius behind what you are about to hear.
He—was diagnosed with T1 diabetes at age 11.  He was a finalist on American Idol’s 5th season but most kids in the room will recognize him from his reoccurring role on Disney’s Good Luck Charlie.
With special apologies to Disney, I present Sarah Loebner and Kevin Covais singing a special song with special words.  Listen closely to the words.

I share it with you (click the picture above) because the diabetes community needs to hear this, your kids need to hear this, I needed to hear this.  A FFL does not always have to happen at a conference, this conference; but in our so incredibly complex lives, we all need a FFL.

Nice job CWD allowing this song to be presented at the highlight of your conference.  Nice job Kevin and super nice job Sarah Loebner at creating something so special.
So share this with someone you know and love because when it comes to diabetes, some people are worth melting for.

Take THAT diabetes.

……..Because Some People are Worth Melting For……..A Parent’s Letter.

FrozenMy Dear Child,

It is more important that you do than I.

I wish I could take it all from you.

While you are at this age, I will do all that is necessary so you can grow.

When the time is right, you will know what I know and more.

I will cry enough for both of us so you can just enjoy youth.

Know that it kills me every prick of your finger, every injection of insulin.  Forgive me.

The pain I inflict on you freezes my heart only because I know it will keep you alive.

Is my biggest wish for you.

What makes me do for you all I do.

How I work–it’s not important that you know, only that you are able to; let it go…….let it go.

Everything I do in my diabetes world, I do for your my child; my love;  my hero; my strength; my little princess; my little prince.

I long for your fairy tale life and will fight with every ounce of energy to get it for you.

Because some people are worth melting for……..
………you are my ‘some’ people.

I love you.

I am a diabetes dad.
