Publishers Description After losing their father to diabetes, the children in the Traut family faced the very real fact that they were losing their mother as well. Diabetes was claiming the life of another whom they loved. Their mother made One Last Wish; ?Don't let people forget what diabetes has done.? As deadly as cancer, but often underestimated, diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death, and the number one cause of blindness, amputation, and kidney failure in this country. This is the very personal story of a family's journey with diabetes. Marybeth Traut gives us the opportunity to see the struggle, the pain, and the sorrow her family endured and the strength, the faith, and the love that carried them through. One Last Wish is more than a heartwarming story of a family pulling together to overcome crisis, it is packed full of information ? what helps, what doesn?t, what the reader can do to learn about diabetes and treatment and to establish some control. As the Traut family continues to try and keep a profound promise to their mother, we too should share the responsibility until every disease is conquered and every heartbreaking death is prevented ? this should be every one's prayer and One Last Wish.
