Fathers & Diabetes Facts!
Dad & Girl June - pt
According to Dr. Ian Blumer, if a father has T1D, his children have a 6% chance of developing the disease. If both parents have T1D, a child's risk rises to 30%. However, despite the importance of family and genetics, only 15% of those with diabetes have a first degree relative who also has diabetes. 
National Donut Day
#4 Salvation Army - June pt
A snack originally created by the Salvation Army during the Great Depression, donuts & diabetes are not typically a delicious combination, but certainly provide "food for thoughts". While one parent understandably bemoans the frequent appearance of this sugary, high caloric treat after youth sports events in her article "Doughnuts and Do-nots", please appreciate the positives in the diabetes-friendly donut recipe for our Recipe of the Month at the bottom of this column!

Dads are extremely special people. Like Chris Dudley, a well-loved father himself, Dads are the rock of reliability that gets us through the toughest of times, helping us to be
Fathers day Best dad ever photo june ptstrong and successful. They teach us; they inspire us; and
they give us goals to aspire to. When we attain them, they are right by our side, ready to celebrate our achievements.
In return, to all of the Dads who support our T1D every day every year, we would like to say, from the bottom of our hearts... thank you. Happy Father's Day! 

Dear Dad, 
Thank you for always working so hard and for always being there for me. Thanks for always encouraging me when I need it most. You are the best Dad in the world. You ROCK!!!!!!!
Love,

Dear Dad - 
I think you are really great! I like to play games with you and be outside. I hope we can go to a National Park this summer too and hike. Smile, it makes the world a better place. 
I love you dad,
Sophie V. 
 
Dear Dad- 
Thanks you for everything you have done for me. I hope we continue to do fun things. You need to be a Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, and Sox fan. That would make you even more awesome.
Love you. Let's play basketball soon!

Dear Dad, 
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate everything you do for me. You have pushed me to become the best athlete, student and person I can be and that means the world to me. I don't know what I would do without your support in everything I do. You inspire me and I love you!
Love, 
Megan W.

Dear Dad: Dudley style   

Dear Dad, 
I want to take the time to thank you for everything that you do for me and to tell you how much I appreciate you. I came up with 10 things that I appreciate that you do: 

1. You always help me with basketball and other sports I play
2. You drop things off at my school when I forget them
3. You coach all of my teams in sports
4. You help with my homework
5. You take our family on great trips
6. You take me to Blazer games
7. You help take care of me while I'm sick
8. You push me hard to be my best
9. You make me a better person
10. You love me unconditionally 

There are lots of ways that I appreciate you, but these are just a few. Thanks for being such a great Dad. 
Love, 
Charles Dudley 

Dear Dad, 
Appreciation is hard to show sometimes. Saying that, you might not know how much I appreciate you, and all that you do for me. You have been a great Dad from helping me with math homework to teaching basketball moves. If you weren't my Dad, I would be a completely different person because you have made me a good person. You are a really great Dad and you have created so many great memories for me: going to Black Butte, getting a dog, and of course, the Dudley Camp. You have made my life so amazing and you know how to make me feel better. You are a great leader, Dad, and person overall. I love you so much and I hope you realize how much I appreciate you. I love you and I thank you for everything. 

Love, 
Emma Dudley

Dear Dad, 
I love you because you are always there for me at my games and when I ask you to play basketball, football, or lacrosse, you will always come out. When I need help with my homework, you will always help me. I love you. 

Love, 
Sam Dudley

Honoring A Dearly Departed Father -     Dr. John J.Watson   
#7 June Noah Watson
    Noah & Chris
      at CDF Camp

We would like to extend our utmost of sympathy to one of our campers, Noah Watson, and his family, who  lost their beloved father, John J. Watson, on May 18. Noah's father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at age 45 leaving behind his wife, Leslie, and their four children - John; Noah - a CDF camper; Stephen; and Elizabeth. Dr. Watson,  a professor at St. Bonaventure University, was an incredible man and father, and highly respected in the community. His loss leaves a huge absence for many. We are thinking of Noah and his family, knowing how painful it must be to be celebrating Father's Day without him. We send our love and our prayers to Noah and the Watsons. Please read more about this remarkable man.
