This is Max

This is Max.

Max is tough.

He plays football and does parkour.

He hikes miles and miles and climbs mountains. 

He is strong and fast and smart.

Max studies hard, eats right, and exercises.

Max also has Type 1 diabetes. 

but he doesn't let it stop him.

He checks his blood sugar all the time and gives himself shots several times every day. 

Even with excellent management, he has lots of challenges to fight.

As smart and as tough as he is, he can't beat diabetes on his own. And he doesn't just want to beat it for himself, but the millions of other people who fight it as well.

So, if you are going to donate money somewhere this year, please consider JDRF.

Help Max fight. Help Max win.

  2. Love this. Made me tear up. He is such an amazing kid! Can't wait to see you guys in January.

  3. Good for Max. He is way ahead of the game! I manifested type 1 diabetes at the age of forty. That was 26 years ago. So far, no complications. Go Max! There is light ahead in the tunnel!(not just at the end).
