I’m saddened of my cousin Brad Tanaka’s passing on June 29, 2016 from Type 1 Diabetes. He was only 46. The cause of Type 1 Diabetes is unknown. My cousin had it since he was about 9 years and from then on, he had to administer shots into himself every day in order to stay healthy. I really hope there will be a cure for Type 1 Diabetes in the near future. I pray to him in hope that he is happy and at peace. When I close my eyes, I can see him smiling.
