Life is better when hope is in bloom. Hope, like a rose, exudes beauty and awe.

It can be given as a gift imbued with the power of love.

When hope is in bloom it can move us to accomplish great things.

Let us cherish it as we continue our fight to cure, treat and prevent diabetes.

2014 Promise Light Family

Schmidt Family 1


This year’s Promise Light recognizes the Schmidt family for their dedication to JDRF and their tireless efforts to fight to cure diabetes. Will, age 8, and Sophie, age 6, have both been battling this disease for most of their young lives. They are active students, athletes, children, and siblings, but their roles as diabetics are the most intrusive and exhausting.
