Arden gets messages from all around the world about her blog. Here is some recent correspondence...
Posted on Arden’s Video Blog. From Emily age 12:
This is very touching, and i really didn't know how much all these shots would add up to, how many does Arden usually have??
I am a type 1 diabetic, and my heart really goes out to someone as young as Arden, coping with this terrible disease, she really is the bravest little girl i have heard off. Although i am much older then Arden (12!) i still know how it is to live with Diabetes, but to try and re-assure you, it does get easier for the parent once the child grows up, so my mom says , most days i now give myself insulin and tset my own BG, we need to find a cure, to give all the sufferers their childhoods back, it isn't fair.
STAY STRONG ARDEN, a cure is on its way. xxx

Thank you for this. My daughter has type 1 as well (age 4), and although we try to keep positive for her sake, it's also important to remember that this is NO way to live. I'll never think of "King of Pain" in the same way again ...
This one arrived via email:
Hi, my name is Nicole and I was just viewing your website. It is absolutely amazing and I cried my eyes reading every portion of it. I have a daughter who is 7 and was diagnosed with diabetes March 2007. It is definitely a daily struggle to maintain the blood sugars but as any other, we are learning everyday and coping the best we can. Fortunately my daughter is a trooper and doesn’t let it get her down, I’m the one who occasionally gets down.
But I just wanted to thank you for the amazing website. Your daughter is beautiful. I wish you all the best.
Hello! My name is Jeanette and my 6 year old daughter was just diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on March 10 of this year. I did sign your petition, of course, and I just wanted to personally thank you for getting so involved. It is a very frustrating time for us with her numbers going up and down so often. Please keep me informed with your progress. Thank you,
My thank you to you...
These people found Arden’s Day because of you and the diligent and caring way you spread the word. Thank you!
As you can see Arden’s Blog is many things to many people. It’s hope for the hopeless, comfort for those that feel alone and a teaching tool to those that previously didn’t know.
Maybe one day a young researcher will stand to receive the noble prize for medicine and begin their speech, “I decided to become a doctor one day when I saw a little girl on the internet that had Type I Diabetes...”
