Marissa Returns From Diabetes Summer Camp, Gives Thanks To Bret

Marissa Loved Diabetes Camp!

Thank you so much, Bret, for sending our daughter Marissa to diabetes camp at Camp Soles! She just got home today. She had a wonderful week at camp. They spent their time swimming, canoeing, climbing the rock wall, learning archery and making friends. She especially loved the dance party and when her team won first at the “Mock Rock” dance contest. She learned to do her own insulin pump sites this week also! We are so proud of her. We are so happy she was able to spend a week at a place where she fit in and checking her blood and taking insulin was “normal”. The memories & friendships she made will last a lifetime. 

Marissa is 11 and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes almost 3 years ago. She doesn’t let diabetes hold her back from doing anything! We want to thank you not only for sending her to camp, but also for showing her that you can still ROCK with diabetes. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
