I read this today and it really made me smile.
Little Jacob, diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, felt different and alone in the world wearing an insulin pump, in a show of solidarity, his parents got an image of an insulin pump tattooed on their abdomens, declaring that they are “forever linked” to their son Jacob.

Haha this is so funny and cute. If I was at the beach and saw a man/woman with a tattoo like that I’d be like “Huh?!” But this is probably the sweetest gesture ever. Love it!

🙂 Very cute. My son is a t1d. I’m not waiting in line for a tattoo but I definitely think that was kind of them.

The top link is dead, but this one should work.
I found the story about them fundraising to be more touching – I can’t imagine having an image of a pump on my body for the rest of my life. One day Jacob might get an islet transplant or some other new form of technology – then what?
