In July 2016 my nephew Caenan who was 5 at the time was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. As you are probably all aware this was a shock to everyone. However, this amazing boy has taken everything in his stride! Alongside his amazing family they have ensured Caenan leads a life like every other boy of his age. He is an amazing sportsman who loves to play cricket, football and will give everything a go without any hesitation.
As Caenan's aunty I have seen first hand what he and his parents deal with on a daily basis. From finger pricking, injections, highs, lows etc. (This aunty was stressed taking him to the zoo! ringing his mum every 2 minutes trying to understand his digits)
SO I have decided to challenge myself and run a Marathon! This will take place on the 12th May. I want to do this to in some small way raise funds for these awesome organisations who provide the families with so much help and support.
I have chosen Diabetes Youth Waikato as the charity as Caenan will directly be supported by them in upcoming events, camps and a great network group for not only Caenan but Emerson his younger brother and Cherie and Gavin.
