Letter: Type 1 diabetes champion is a true hero

Kudos to Lucas Cunliffe, who is going the distance to help those with Type 1 diabetes live a better life

Re: Student aims fundraising at diabetes research, Oak Bay News, Nov. 16

Good on you Lucas Cunliffe. It is not often that I hear of someone who will go the distance to help those with Type 1 diabetes live a better life into the future.

You are my idol and I applaud your diligence and sacrifices that you have had to endure over the past five years.

Stay true to your regimen of care and quality of life and you will do the impossible along the way; it will happen.

December will be my 50th year of celebrating life with Type 1 and I look forward to reaching many more goals.

Thanks for sharing.
