Here are a few photos from the day!
Here's Maiya and her little sister Madison wearing our team t-shirts!
Maiya got up on stage in front of everyone (all 500 people!) and spoke about having diabetes, about getting shots every day and checking her blood. She was super brave and a great speaker! Interviewing her is Amanda Ober from our local Channel 2 news station.
Toby and Madison comparing strollers....
Maiya with her mom and dad!
Maiya with Paul and I (can you tell Paul and Pat are twins!!)
It was a wonderful day full of great memories! Toby had a fabulous time walking and also riding in his stroller too! Afterwards I did get my delicious nap, I was exhausted - we all were! Toby is still sleeping!! I wanted to get some work done tonight but I am just too worn out. Tomorrow I will start fresh!
Thank you so much to those of you who sponsored us on our walk for a cure for Maiya! We truly appreciate it!!
Maiya and Toby. Will be keeping my fingers crossed
for Maiya; with her very own dinosaur team, she can't
help but hit a home run. I am happy to hear that her TV interview went so well. Maiya is indeed a beautiful and brave little girl. Toby looks so handsome.
How very cool to have a twin for a husband. Madison is a total cutie too. Glad you will be resting this evening.
All the best,
I'm so glad to hear that your niece was able to get the pump. My dearest friend has a 13 year old daughter with diabetes, and the pump has really made their life a little easier.
Your niece is such a cutie.
