"Amelia's Little Stars" at the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes by MarknKaren - almost 5 years ago
"This photo was taken at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Walk to Cure Diabetes at the Mall of America, January, 2009. Our daughter, Amelia, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2008 at the young age of 8 months. Now 17-months old, Amelia served as the captain of our 48-member team, "Amelia's Little Stars." This was our first fund raising event to help find a cure for this disease. Amelia is pictured sleeping in her mommy's arms (2nd from left) which is how she spent the entire morning at the walk since it took place very early on a cold Minnesota morning. Her supportive sister is also shown (center, in pigtails) along with a family friend and Amelia's daddy. CustomInk was a fabulous company with which to work. Each person with whom we spoke gave the ultimate attention to details and demonstrated superb customer service. They even went the extra mile and donated to JDRF in honor of our team! One customer service representative even took the time to learn about the details of our daughter's situation and sent a heart-felt message to us regarding her battle with diabetes. This is an amazing company and we will definitely work with them again!"
