Meet Tristan Mikkelson
Tristan has been challenged with diabetes. Just recently, he had such a low blood sugar that he thought he was going to die. Tristan layed in his mother's arms and said Mom, I want God to take me, I don't want to do this anymore. Well, God did not take him, he has a mission and is an excellent runner , photographer and painter. He helps organize school walks for diabetes and raises lot of money to help find a cure. Way to go Tristan, you are a superhero that perseveres... When asked what would bring him joy, golf clubs as he enjoys golf, new running shoes as he loves running... no, Tristan only wanted a weekend with his beautiful family enjoying Seattle and the Museum of Flight. What a simply request and yes, we did fulfil it. This summer Tristan went to Mexico with his youth group to help out with an orphanage. What a way to use your life to help others. Thanks Tristan for being such a great role model for others!!!
