I am a single mom who had to put my life on hold to raise my 9 year old son who was
born with kidney damage. The doctors said he wasn’t supposed to survive. He is a
true miracle child. Noah had a kidney transplant 3 years ago at Cincinnati Childrens
hospital. It was touch and go for a while. I had used your music during some of my
darkest hours of not knowing how things would turn out with Noah. As Noah’s grown up, he has listened to me play your music and has became one of your youngest fans. Noah has a long road ahead of him with his health. Doctors said he will need another transplant in the future.
Noah was very surprised to have the chance to see you, his hero up at the Cleveland
Rib Burn off on Memorial Day. He was too shy to speak up. You have inspired us with
your music, and the struggles you been through. You have given alot to people. Noah
wants to help and be inspiration to other kids like himself who is going through the
same thing. As you did with the Diabetes Foundation and your charities.
This is a story about my son Chris. He is 14 years old. Chris was diagnosed
when he was nine years old – January 4, 2008. We were so lucky that our doctor
picked up on the signs and got the help Chris needed right away. Chris was in the
hospital for five days. My husband and I were in a state of shock yet put on a
brave face and learned as much as we could about Type 1 Diabetes. Chris is such an
awesome kid!! One night in the hospital I was on my laptop researching Type 1 and
saw Camp Midicha.
I was so excited that the camp Chris had gone to Day Camp is the
same Camp where Camp Midicha is!! I signed him up for Camp – because Chris was nine he had to go to the overnight Camp. Chris was nervous about staying overnight for the week but went anyway. Chris had a BLAST and was so happy he went!! That was five years ago. The last four years Chris went for both sessions. He LOVES Camp.
To be able to be with kids with Type 1 is so awesome!!! He learned how to put his
pump site on his legs last summer – which was huge!!
Chris is in the SuperMan shirt. He has had the greatest Counselors at Camp throughout the years and hopes to be a Counselor when he is older at Camp Midicha in Fenton Michigan. Midicha – Michigan Diabetes Chapter…
