    That design looks GREAT! Thanks for making everyone aware of this. I was glad to give to the cause. My dad has Diabetes, so it’s important to be involved wherever possible!

    Sam, you are so cool. I have type 1 diabetes too and I have a pump. Do you have a pump or do you take shots? I always wanted to be a race car driver growing up, but my dad said that the car hit too many things when I drove it! Dang.
    Thanks Bart for supporting JDRF! The length of our lives literally hang on the research and technology provided through JDRF.
    Sam you rock!

    I just went and made a donation. We are a drag racing family. We just watched my Father in Law race 2 weeks ago in a car that he won 7 world records in. We usually race 68 camaro’s. Here’s a link to my blog and the 66 Biscayne that broke records. http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/sharpcrew/Through%2BThe%2BLens/
    It is a great fun sport. That’s how hubby and I met. I hope you win Sam. I wish we could have you here to race with us. By the way, my family has diabetes all through it. I pray they do find a cure and soon.
    HUGS.

I pray that you will do what you’re supposed to and that together we can find a cure. You have an awesome design for your race car. I will definitely vote for yours.

    Hi Sam,

    You are a very special person. You have created a very cool car, and I am sure that you will do well in this contest. I suffer from a brain tumor, so I know what it is like to have to get shots and so much medical attention. Thank you for being such a brave young man as you face your illness head on. May God bless you and keep you.

    Shannon

    Lord,

    I lift Sam up to You, and I ask that You would reach inside him and cure him from his diabetes. Your Word says that You are the Great Physician. We know that through You all things are possible. Give Sam’s physicians wisdom and discernment as they treat him, and work through them.

    In Christs’ name I pray,

    Amen

  • Lexie

    Hi Sam,

    My 8 year old son and I watched the video you made with your daddy. We both thought your design was AWESOME! My 8 year old was very impressed with your coloring job. Our family made a donation for your car – it would be fun if you win! When we finished making the donation we said a prayer for you and others with diabetes that scientist and doctors would find a cure! Again great job on your design.

    Bart and Sam,
    My 7 year old and I found your website today and were watching some of the videos. Ben picked up on a t-shirt one of the guys was wearing with the Imagine A Cure logo on it. Then we found this video. After hearing what the program is about, he figured out that the heart on the finger was about the blood sugar tests that leave fingers sore. He has watched me do those same blood sugar tests for two years now and hates to see me do it. He went and pulled out his wallet and told me to donate all the money he had in it.

    So Sam, in your honor, we have donated all $17.30 that he had. His comment was that he wished he had not spent so much of his money on a recent trip so he could have sent more. The grand total on the donations is now over $2100.

    Bart, your child has taught my child something amazing about working together to make small changes that made together make big changes in the world. Even his small donation added with others makes a big donation. Thank you for sharing your son with us.

    Stephanie

  • Jim Taylor

    Bart & Sam,

    My son Mason was diagnosed with Type 1 two years ago at the age of 8, so we know exactly what you go through on a daily basis. Mason is in to piano, guitar, basketball, and tennis, and is doing great with his Type 1, although as you know it’s a lot of work!

    It’s great to see you are supporting JDRF and we join you in that effort. Sam, I know God has a plan for you, and my son Mason, and that He will open doors so that through diabetes you guys can bring glory to God’s name.
