David Kindness wants to give back

Posted in Diabetes Research News

“About a decade ago, when I was 15 years old, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D). It was really scary news. Overnight, doctors explained that I’d have to start counting carbs and managing carb intake, give myself insulin shots multiple times a day, and the scariest of all.. “There is no cure.” Since then, I’ve learned to manage it well. T1D graduated from college with me, it’s traveled internationally, gone on many hikes and road trips. It’s surfed, longboarded, rock climbed and skied with me, and it’s affected every step in the process of my life. As I’ve taught myself adventure photography in recent years, T1D has been behind the lens of every shot I’ve taken. Today, a decade after my diagnosis, I believe that a permanent cure for diabetes could be found within the next decade, from research. I want to use something I love – my photography – to help fund that research, so I’m donating a percentage of all proceeds from sales of both printed and digital photography to the search for a cure for type 1 diabetes.”
