    As a former resident of Stansbury Park, and a parent of a child with Type 1 diabetes, I truly relate to this story on so many levels. It sure does seem like that small patch of Tooele County has a lot of autoimmune disease. ( Our two block radius had over 5 children diagnosed in three years with Type 1.) Also, I had many neighbors with Ciliac disease as well. After three of our eight family members were diagnosed with various autoimmune disease, and one of my children had a fifty fifty chance of contracting Type 1 with certain markers for it being positive for it. As a family, we decided it was time to move. After our move my child with the fifty fifty chance no longer showed markers for the disease. Thank Goodness! It would sure make for an interesting study on the environment out there vs. the cases of type 1 and other autoimmune disease.
    On another note: way to be Wyatt for being there for Drake...your mom and dad must be so proud of you!

    You can play ball Drake and Wyatt and your parents will be rooting for you. Just do what the doctor order you to take good care of yourself (health wise) so you can continue to play ball that you love.
