Katie formed a team “Team Bailey” for the Buffalo JDRK Walk to Cure Diabetes at the Buffalo Zoo Sunday in honor of her Dad. Thanks to all of those in the family that donated to the team in honor of her Dad and Nana.

Just so you know..

“Everyone has specific targets they have to meet to make their money.  But then why is it that many executives of  diabetes non-profits (with the exception of the JDRF), gets paid based on goals and objectives that have nothing to do with finding a cure?

We just finished our latest report  ” Are Non-Profit Executives Financially Incentivized to Deliver a Cure”, and our findings are pretty upsetting. Most of the CEO’s are rewarded on the performance of completely different criteria, such as advocacy, or how much fundraising they pull in.  Finding a cure is a large part of every organization’s mission, so why is progress towards one not incentivized at all? If they’re going to get bonuses anyway, shouldn’t the bonuses be for work that helps cure diabetics, and not for how much fundraising they gain?”

Jeff Brewer’s (CEO) son has diabetes and his number one goal is to find a cure- money goes to research! Much better place to put your donation!

Way to go Katie!



Officially a speech and hearing science major. Congratulations Katie!!!

My soccer season is also starting on monday so that will hopefully be an awesome season where we win a few games :] haha But other than that I am just working ( 3 nights a week now ) and hanging out. Miss you all and hope to see you very soon :]

Edited: The lyrics are very cute:
You’re my Honeybunch, Sugarplum
Pumpy-umpy-umpkin, You’re my Sweetie Pie
You’re my Cuppycake, Gumdrop
Snoogums-Boogums, You’re the Apple of my Eye
And I love you so and I want you to know
That I’ll always be right here
And I love to sing sweet songs to you
Because you are so dear.

Love and miss you all!!


Well I started my allergy shots yesterday morning…I get one shot every thursday morning for up to the next 5 years! It will most likely only be 2 but 5 is a possibility. And they said that I am on track for gettting asthma but these shots have an 85% sucess rate so hopefully I will be all good by the time this is over! And oh yeah I am highly allergic to cats, dust, and dust mites so those are the things they’re putting in me…which I think might have made me sick beacuse I feel horrible today..I think it might be beacuse I forgot to take my medicine yesterday but I’m not sure! well anwyays wish me luck for my next one!

Love and Miss All of You!!
