"I wanted to let you know that our family weekend event in Charlottesville will focus on the emotional and behavioral aspects of living with diabetes. We are flying in professionals from Colorado and Northern Virginia. These professional facilitators are highly skilled therapists in equine coaching and traditional therapy who work specifically with teens and families. Additionally, our local team member is supplying us with 10 beautiful horses and several mini’s for this event and is also an amazing mentor who has experience with equine assisted therapy. The event will be fun just like a normal camp but we will also provide an opportunity for you to take part in these special break-out sessions.

As you know, the emotional impact of raising a child with diabetes is paramount to my personal mission - to be proactive and to provide resources that were absent when I was raising my daughter with diabetes. I have parents contacting me weekly about their emotional struggles and they are asking for support. You are not alone! This event and the associated resources is what I have to offer to you. It is of the highest quality and integrity. We have been through the healing process of the equine coaching and it works. 

As a community, we need YOUR support to take part in this event. This weekend promises to bring healing and resources to you and your family and we hope you see it as an opportunity. As an organization, all we can do is to provide resources that families are asking for and hope they make it a priority to take part."
