RAY ALLEN’S THANKSGIVING SCARE

ray

This past Thanksgiving was not a joyful time for Celtics guard Ray Allen: his son Walker was admitted to the hospital. Walker, 2, who suffers from childhood diabetes, stayed in the hospital for four days before being released on the same day as Allen’s Celtics-Heat game on November 29th.

According to the BostonHerald.com, Allen’s decision to play in the Sunday’s game was not an easy one.

“He’s been going through it and the whole time he’s managed to keep his spirits,” Allen said before the Celtics-Heat game. “When I was there to make the plane and I only left because once he got up and I had him listening to music on my iPod and he was up. I just wanted to make sure he was all right before I left.”

Allen first learned of his son’s diagnosis during the 2008 NBA Finals. Click here to see pictures of Ray and his son at the 2008 NBA finals

WHAT IS JUVENILE DIABETES?
Diabetes (medically known as diabetes mellitus) is the name given to disorders in which the body has trouble regulating its blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels. There are two major types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, also called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a disorder of the body’s immune system — that is, its system for protecting itself from viruses, bacteria or any “foreign” substances. A third form of diabetes, called monogenic diabetes, is sometimes mistaken for type 1 diabetes.((source)
