My son, Sean was diagnosed at age 5 with Type I (Juvenile) Diabetes.  As a result, our family has been very involved with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) since the mid 90's.  This chronic disease affects the whole family, and we have made it our goal to help others.  We hope to make an impact and be part of the cure.
