The Donley Family Testimonial
Diabetes camp is a blessing! Jackson was newly diagnosed last year when it came time for camp. He had never been to an away camp before. He wanted to go and was so excited. The parents answered all of my questions that I had the days before on the Facebook page. As soon as we got there, Jackson started playing and wanted me to leave. So, I did. This was my 1st break since diagnosis. I knew he was in great hands.
On Sunday when I came in, they were serving lunch and Jackson gave himself his on shot. This was a huge deal. We never could get him to give himself a shot before. Then as soon as we got home, he inserted his Dexcom on his own. I was overjoyed and so proud. He was so proud of himself that he just beamed with pride.
He learned so much that weekend. He made friendships that will last a lifetime. He played so hard and ate some awesome food. He cannot wait until next summer. Mom is looking forward to her weekend break.
