At first I thought, “Oh, that is a cute shirt.” Then I read the story behind it and realized that I NEED to get this shirt and it is important for me to share it with you too.
Five-year-old Kycie Terry started complaining of a headache and just days later was flown to Primary Children’s with a blood glucose level of 1148. (Normal range is around 100.) She had un-diagnosed Type 1 Diabetes. Before Kycie passed away at age from the resulting brain injury/DKA, she would say, “Love you mostest infinity.” She fought hard and stole the hearts of thousands while spreading awareness of the dangers and symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes.
At this time, there is NO way to prevent or cure T1D. But there is hope! There are some promising studies and research in the works right now.
Trust me, I (Melanie) know more about it than I want to. My dear 8-year-old son was diagnosed with Type 1 earlier this year. He was misdiagnosed by the pediatrician. Thankfully, we were still able to figure out what was going on before it became too late for him, largely due to friends and family knowing the warning signs.
Now his life depends on me giving his body insulin, since his pancreas can no longer do it. Our lives changed forever and the disease is very difficult, requiring constant monitoring and lots of shots, but we are so thankful for him and that it is still possible for him to have a long and wonderful life.
Type 1 Diabetes can happen to anyone at any time, so it is important to recognize the warning signs and know what it is before it is too late!
Kycie has helped dozens of kids be diagnosed and the Kisses for Kycie foundation was started in her honor. A portion of the proceeds from every sale of this tee go to research to help find a way to prevent and cure, but also to spread awareness of T1D!
This is the last chance of the year to get this cute tee – and help support an important cause while you’re at it!
