Patient with a Cause - Meet MacKenzie

MACKENZIE BERTELESEN – Juvenile Diabetes Research

 

Meet Mackenzie is a patient of our office. She is an active 12 year old girl, who is a competitive dancer and soccer player. She loves spending time with friends and has a passion for the arts. On October 01, 2013 Mackenzie's life changed forever, when she was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus type I, also known as type I diabetes.
   

Type I diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes suddenly by destroying the insulin producing cells in the pancreas, that leads to high levels of glucose in the blood. It represents only 5-10% of all diabetes cases and left untreated type I diabetes is fatal. It cannot be prevented; it is not caused by poor diet and cannot be modified, corrected or cured by diet. There is currently no cure for type I diabetes.


To keep Mackenzie alive, she has to endure multiple daily injections of insulin 4-6 times per day and test her blood sugar levels 6-10 times per day by pricking her finger with a needle to test her blood.


Medication and supplies to keep Mackenzie alive averages $1000 plus per month and is not covered by OHIP. It is an out of pocket expense. A CURE IS NEEDED.
 

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), is the largest charitable funder of, and advocate for, diabetes science worldwide with more than 80% of donations directly supporting research, education and advocacy.
 

On June 8th, 2014 more than 45 000 people across Canada along with 6 other countries will come together as a community to raise funds for research to cure, better treat and prevent type I diabetes. Mackenzie and her family will be participating in the walk to cure type I diabetes.
 

Please support Mackenzie by donating to the JDRF Telus Walk to cure type I diabetes and help end this disease.

Thank you!

A special thank you goes out to the Bell employees at the downtown office. A parent from our London location and her fellow Bell employees went above and beyond and collected food donations for our Goderich Food Drive at their work place. We are so appreciative and touched when someone chooses to join us in supporting one of our causes. Thanks also goes out to everyone else who has taken time to drop off food. We will continue to accept non-perishable donations at all 3 offices locations until further notice.

 

Clipped for Cancer

Congratulations to Payton Beyea, who grew his hair out for two years as part of a fundraiser for cancer. Inspired by his the death of his grandfather Payton raised over $3000 for the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario, which is an organization that ensures children with cancer have access to state-of-the-art cancer care. The following is Payton’s story as told by his mom:

 

"Two years ago this past Christmas our 11 year old son Payton Beyea came to us and told us that he would like to grow his hair and donate it for a wig for a Cancer Patient. The decision to grow his hair for two years was not without some negative consequences. Payton has endured a lot of comments and ridicule from his peers for having long hair and some people have even called him a girl, but it hasn’t stopped him from completing what he had set out to do in grade four. Payton was first exposed to cancer when his beloved "Papa" was diagnosed and passed away with Pancreatic Cancer several years ago. We are extremely proud of him and his dedication to his cause to help people with Cancer. Payton cut his hair on December 22nd, 2011 in front of his Peers at Jeanne Sauve French Immersion Public School and has raised so far $3,851.75. Money raised is being donated to POGO (The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario) Online donations can still be made at www.pogo.ca/payton Any donations given to help him double his original goal is much appreciated!”

 

Way to go Payton, you are an inspiration to all of us!
