The Malone Family, Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York

Welcome! We have been waiting soooo long for you, Rufus! Everyone was very excited to meet you. Ryan already has a full schedule for you! We did a quick after school blood test, and both you and Ryan were great. It's kinda weird for us to go back to shots with you, Rufus. Ryan has been on the pump since July, and can bolus himself and manage his corrections and food at school. He's only 8, too! I know when you get home to see your doctor after all of your travels, you will probably tell him how great the pump is!
Well, Rufus, it's time to sent you along. We've been trying and trying to meet with our Congresswoman, but we couldn't work it out. We hope you like your walk-a-thon shoes and backpack! The people at Build-A-Ben really enjoyed meeting you, too!
Good luck. We'll miss you!
Ryan Malone and Family
