Carrie Newcomer

With her words in my ears,
a prayer in my heart, 
and my daughter in the audience...

I will be calm
I will quietly present my work
I will speak out
for those impacted 
Type 1 Diabetes
as I  remember this man

Howard M. Blank
November 29, 1952 - August 9, 2006

and the work of these men

Dr. Charles Best
Dr. Frederick Banting
Co-discoverers of Insulin

I will be thankful for this opportunity.
It won't be easy, I know,
but I'll believe that it's so, 
 I'll do this hard thing.

7 p.m., Lacombe Memorial Centre
5214 - 50 Avenue, Lacombe, Alberta

Mark on the Body:
Honouring Those
Who Live with Type 1 Diabetes
