Yesterday was Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. Jews around the world spend the day fasting, in prayer, and reflection.
As it happens, September 23 is a notable day for our family for another reason. This year marks the 22nd anniversary of my daughter Ilana’s diagnosis with type 1 diabetes at age two.
On that day in 1993, we told major breakthroughs were 5 years away. Some things have changed dramatically since then–how we test blood sugar, how we deliver insulin, what she can eat, and, most importantly, a much improved prognosis for type 1 diabetics. But we still don’t have a cure.
Yom Kippur is about releasing the past and looking forward to a better, much improved future starting today. Here’s to continued progress on the diabetes research front so that in 22 years we can look back on this disease in the past tense.
