    DSMALive 'Rents: Forming a Local Support Group with Stacy Mitchell

    in Health

    Stacy Mitchell joins Loraine and Bennet to chat about building local, in real life support.


    Stacy is the mom of 5 year old kindergartner Caden James.  Caden James was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in April 2011, two days after his second birthday.  Completely unaware of the disease or anyone currently living with type 1, Stacy reached out on social media to find other diabetic families. 


    Within a month of Caden James' diagnosis, Stacy became active with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Alabama chapter and worked to create a local outreach group called the Bolusers of Birmingham.  The Bolusers of Birmingham now have over 140 families affected by type 1 diabetes.  Caden James wears an Animas Ping insulin pump and a Dexcom G4 continuous glucose meter.  Nightscout, the CGM in The Cloud initiative, is also part of Caden James' apparatus.   Stacy and her family reside in Birmingham, Alabama.

    FREEDOM FRIDAY - Special Guest - Dominick Domasky

    in Motivation

    Dominick Domasky is a loving father of two beautiful children and a
    devoted husband from a small town named Greensburg, right outside of
    Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Dominick is a graduate of the University of
    Pittsburgh in business management, a supporter of JDRF, an inspirational
    author, a motivational speaker, and a successful cold calling, door
    knocking commercial insurance salesman. The loves of his life are his
    family, business, telling stories and basketball.
    Mr. Domasky arrived at inspirational story writing and motivational
    speaking with a unique background. As a boy Dominick learned the value
    of hard work pulling weeds and doing odd jobs in the fields of his father’s
    landscape company. He took that knowledge, placed it into his passions,
    and carried it throughout everything in his life from basketball to business.
    The only problem was he failed, over and over.
    In 2002 Dominick quit his job to fulfill his lifelong dream of owning a
    restaurant. Three years later he was nearly a half a million dollars in debt,
    jobless and wanted by the law (business related of course). His wife was
    pregnant with their first child, that his family had struggled to have for
    years, and he couldn’t afford to feed them.
    Dominick rebounded from this setback. With ever present persistence and
    no sales experience he was able to find a job in sales. Lack of experience
    meant nothing because Dominick believed in himself all along. Dominick
    found joy in meeting and helping new people in turn his numbers were
    great and he had soon found himself a career he loved.
    The sales company he worked for was big on writing your goals and in a
    tiny spiral notebook he began to put his pen to the pad. Soon goals became
    sentences, and sentences became paragraphs. Before long Don’t Double
    Bread The Fish was born.
