No Sugar Needed is a place where I share our diabetes story. On April 6, 2003 my youngest child Nikki (Mouse) was diagnosed with type 1 juvenile diabetes. To say that it dramatically changed our lives would be an understatement; however, thanks to the bravery and determination of Nikki, our entire family has learned to appreciate each day in a very real way.
