Join me in the fight to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes!

Hello! This year, I’ll be taking part in JDRF’s Ride to Cure Diabetes, along with hundreds of other riders across the country to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).  If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening.  And they know it never goes away.

I am asking for your support.  Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts.  By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
  • Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
  • Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?

As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D.  JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.  Won’t you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?

Thank you for your support!

Friendlier, More Personally Involved Divorce Options

As a mediator and collaborator, I assist couples in CT with the process of creating a divorce settlement agreement that meets their
family’s unique goals and needs. Rather than discussing one’s case in an open, crowded courthouse hallway, collaboration
and mediation take place in a comfortable, non-intimidating setting. The couples actively resolve their own issues, while a
mediator or collaborator provides legal support and gives experienced insight when conflict occurs.
While the ultimate goal in collaboration and mediation is the same, the process is somewhat different. In Collaboration, each
spouse is represented by his/her respective collaboratively trained attorney, who always keeps the couple’s goals in mind to
help facilitate an agreement. In Mediation, however, the parties work with a neutral third party, who serves as a facilitator,
but who cannot provide legal advice to either party.
During mediation and collaboration sessions, spouses are persuaded not only to discuss what they want, but also the reasons
behind their decision. This enables the couple to better understand each other’s requests.
After divorce, while you and your spouse will no longer be a couple, you will always share a family. You are both the most important people in your childrens’ lives. Give them a gift by divorcing with dignity.
