I am a type 1 diabetic for 27 years and have recently seen Max Domi on TV commercials about diabetes, kudos. Two days ago on January 30, my godchild Nicholas Dalton, age 10 was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

Nicholas is a great kid and has just started playing minor hockey this past September and loves it!

He is still in hospital getting regulated and learning about the disease, when told he would start on 3 needles per day, he was okay with that. His first question was would he be able to play hockey the next day and when told no, he became quite upset, but now he understands that he will be back on the ice by the end of the week and he is pleased with that.

Nicholas is also an avid NHL game watcher and for his age, knows all the players, what teams they play on and their stats. I was thinking that an email/mail from Max would be an absolute thrill for him and encouragement to know that as a diabetic he can still do anything! Thank you for your time.

Yours truly,
Cheryl O’Brien
