A suggestion for Mark’s birthday. Rather then send him a present or note (or maybe in addition to), how about donating to a children’s diabetics research foundation in the name of Will Sheppard? Apparently his youngest son has stage 2 diabeties.
The picture of his son says type 1, doesn’t it? But I could see that being a good gift
It is type 1, which used to be called juvenile diabetes. Type 2 hits adults, usually after they’ve become obsese or have otherwise compromised their endocrine system. Don’t quote me as it’s been awhile since I’ve studied medical science, but I think I remember something about how children can grow out of type 1 sometimes.
