Luke & Lyla Designs

We are so grateful to our friends at Luke & Lyla Designs for their generous donation of not one but TWO of these gorgeous cuffs!

They are both vintage 1970′s era pieces – the larger blue faux turquoise cuff is on recycled/upcycled leather and the smaller pale pink one is on hand cut leather. I have a Luke & Lyla Designs cuff and I LOVE IT! (I was not paid to say that! I really do love it!) Their quality is amazing and the extra touches are evident especially when you see them in person. Each cuff will come with a small canvas bag for storage.

Be THE Dollar that Funds the Cure!!

August 2nd, 2011

Hello friends and family!

October 2, 2008, our 6 year old daughter’s life was forever changed…and so was our family.  Noelle was constantly thirsty, going to the bathroom frequently, always hungry but losing weight, lethargic, and nauseated, all classic symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes. She spent 3 days in the hospital where Dwight and I learned how to keep our daughter alive.  It was overwhelming and terrifying.  It is hard to believe that was almost 3 years ago.  Noelle is the bravest child that I know!

  • She endures 10-12 finger pricks a day to check her blood sugar.
  • She is hooked up to her “life support system” (her insulin pump) 24/7.
  • She has to check her blood sugar, count carbs and take insulin for every bite of food she eats.
  • She never gets a break or vacation from diabetes.  It goes with her everywhere.
  • Through it all, she rarely complains.
  • For her, this is her life.
    On September 24th, we will be walking again in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes to support our daughter, Noelle, and the cure for Juvenile (Type 1) diabetes. Last year, we raised about $4300.00 and we would like to thank everyone again for your generous support of JDRF and Noelle.  This year, we hope to raise $5000!!!

    Your donation supports not only the research for the cure, but also funds many clinical trials currently exploring innovative technologies for better management of Type 1 diabetes. Your money is providing funding for the development of the artificial pancreas. This will be a device much like an insulin pump but will continually monitor her blood sugar levels and inject insulin without human intervention. In other words, this would mean no more finger pricks and insulin shots and most importantly, it will keep her blood sugar in a healthy range without the complications of blood sugar highs and lows. That is just one of the promising technologies being developed but our hope is for the CURE…we are getting closer!!  Thanks for your help!

    We would love for you to come walk with us on Saturday, September 24th at Veterans Park in Hoover, AL. Even if you aren’t able to attend the walk, any donation amount to Noelle’s team is appreciated. Your generous support gets us one step and one dollar closer to the cure. No matter the amount of your donation, your dollar may be THE dollar that funds the CURE!! No donation amount is too small.

    So please donate to JDRF this year and consider making JDRF part of your annual charitable contributions. Thank you for your support and hope to see you at the Walk!  You can follow this link to either join our team or give any amount to help us Fund the CURE!

    Continue to lift Noelle up in your prayers.  We know that God is bigger than any disease and that He has a plan for her through all of this.

    Thank you for your prayers and support!!!

    Much Love,
    Dwight & Krista
