The Billetdeaux Family, Manchester, Michigan
April 27, 2002
Rufus #10 begins his journey around the world - from Manchester, Michigan in the United States to South Africa!
Rufus plans to visit many, many families who have type 1 diabetes (just like he does - Rufus is a bear with diabetes). This is a picture of Sam and Mom on vacation last month (in the Cayman Islands). Diabetes doesn't stop Sam from doing anything-even catching a barracuda on a fishing trip!
Safe travels, Rufus! We love you!
The Billetdeaux Family
Laura (mom), Neal (dad), Sam (dx'd 8/98, 12, pumping 2 years), Carolyn (14), Lucy and Mo (two yellow labs), Fred and Barney (two black cats) and one stupid fish.
