My great aunt was diagnosed with type 1 when she was little. She was recently awarded by the Joslin Center for living with diabetes for 50 years. Kylee was talking to my grandma about it and she said that they had given out the medals to about 2,500 people who had had it for 50 years and that there are less than 20 people who have a medal for 75 years. So Kylee's new goal is to be one of the people who get a 75 year medal. I didnt have the heart to tell her I hope she doesnt get the medal because I dont know that she would really understand that its only because I hope there is a cure long before that. To her, diabetes just is what it is. Its part of her and there is nothing in the forseeable future that will change that. She wants to work with diabetic kids when she grows up and I hope she doesnt get to because there arent any. She and her friend, who also has diabetes, plan to be counselors at their diabetes camp when they are too old to go and I hope there isnt any more need for the camp.
