Thank You JDRF!

A quick, post-trip vlog post that I recorded last night after getting home from the airport.

I know that I look half asleep already, and I’m probably even slurring my words a little bit… but I wanted to get a quick “thank you” out to the JDRF and everyone else I met these past few days.

More to come after I get caught up on my rest!

It was nice to hear what you had to say and to meet you in D.C. I think you are a diabetes advocate if you are working to bring attention to the fight for a cure and better lifestyle for type 1s and/or if you are helping people (young or old 🙂 ) living with type 1. So in my book – you’re an advocate and I hope we’ll see you helping the JDRF GR team in future efforts!
