My name is Kristina Proffitt and my family and I have organized this fundraiser because someone we love SO much was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. That someone is my sweet and beautiful daughter, Caylin. She was 5-years-old when she was diagnosed on March 2, 2011 - a day I will never forget.
SHE is the reason we are doing this. In honor of her and all of the other sweet children who are dealing with the same disorder that she is now faced with for the rest of her life.
Caylin is my sidekick. My baby bird. The one who loves to craft and scrapbook with me. The little girl who comes up to me countless times a day to give me a hug. She's such a bright spot in this world and has made our lives so wonderful. She is priceless to us and I know that as long as she is dealing with Type 1 - I (and the rest of my family) will be raising money to help find a cure and educate people about this disease.
That is what "Caylin's Cure" is all about. Doing all that we can to raise money and awareness about Type 1 so my sweet daughter and countless other children can live a life one day free of Type 1.
Thank you again for taking the time to stop by and read about our fundraiser. I pray that you are able to be a part of it in any way that you can or even just praying for Caylin and our family and all of the children and their families who are dealing with Type 1.
Won't you be a part of spreading that hope?
Thank you and God bless you.
