We have to get the message to her! :)

My son Max was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes mellitus this past July 28, 2014. Friday will be his ninth birthday. He has learned to test his own blood glucose, program his CGM (continuous glucose monitor), and self administer his insulin injections. He is a very brave boy and I am proud of all he has accomplished in learning about and managing this deadly disease.
Max often feels very alone in his diagnosis. He is hard on himself and wishes that he could die and come back with a new pancreas, one that works right instead of the broken one he has. (His words) He feels sometimes that his friends don't understand, and that life is not fair to him. It's not. Who is it fair to?
To Max, his brother Sam, our family, diabetes is a part of our life every day that never goes away. I watched this summer while coping with my son's new diagnosis hundreds plus people dump water over their heads for a very worthy cause. Ellen, I implore you on behalf of my darling sweet boy Max, to complete the egg crack challenge to bring awareness to Type 1 and other forms of diabetes. Your influence and kindness would really make the difference, especially to young fans afflicted with this condition. For Max to see the support would mean the world to helping him feel supported.
Thank you so much for everything you do. We love you and are grateful for your positivity!
Ann, Max and Sam Grant
