It is that time of year again. Time for the weather to start getting warmer, time for the birds to start singing, and time to bolster our efforts to find a cure for Type I Diabetes. This years walk is at the Niabi Zoo on May 2nd, 2015 at 10:00 AM.

Last year was our first year of sponsoring a team for the walk. With the generous donations from friends, family, and patients; we raised $1,795! We are shooting a little higher this year with a goal of $2,000!

I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for over 20 years now. Unfortunately, my daughter Madison was also afflicted with the disease in 2012. She is a trooper, she does not let the disease keep her from doing the things that she loves.

Currently, this is a lifelong disease that can be managed, but not cured. This means there are 4 or more finger sticks every day, counting carbohydrates, making sure that you always have something with you for a high or low blood sugar, as well as the constant fear that those may occur.

They are making many wonderful advancements. Madison now has a pump that can provide insulin for three days with a port site, so that she does not have to inject herself multiple times per day. They have continuous glucose monitors, that can give you a real time indication of where your blood sugar is at throughout the day. But even with these advancements, the daily struggle is still there. That is the reason that we raise money for research.

Donating To Diabetes Research

Here at Family Care Chiropractic, we make it easy to donate. We donate $5 from every visit to our team goal of $2,000. That means that all you have to do is come in and get quality Chiropractic care and we donate for you! This doesn’t mean that you can’t donate as well. We have a team fundraising page where you can go and donate too. We are well on our way, check out the wall at our office that is quickly filling up with shoes!

For every $15 that you donate, you will get one entry into our raffle for the Faith, Hope, & Love wall-mount pictured below. We are giving away two of these wall-mounts that are hand made by Dr. Clay himself! Unfortunately, office visits do not count towards the $15, so we encourage everyone to visit our donations page to get entered into the drawing. We will be drawing on Friday, May 1st. We truly appreciate all of your donations and want to say Thank You in advance.  If you are in the area, we are also taking cash donations at the office. Don’t forget your adjustment if you need a Chiropractor in Davenport! Donate, Get Adjusted & Be Well!
