Ruby attends the Children with Diabetes Conference in Pasadena, California, with the Crowley Family
July 17-21, 2002
Ruby #4 joined the other traveling Rufus and Ruby bears (there are 13 in all!) at the Friends for Life conference in Pasadena. Here is a picture of some of Ruby's relatives! Ruby visited with the 1,000+ conference participants who came through the Exhibit Hall to say hello. She enjoyed meeting Colleen Crowley, who had the idea a year ago to send Rufus and Ruby from CWD family to family to share stories, experiences, and everything that happens in kids' lives every day. Ruby enjoyed her travels last year and shared her journal with everyone who stopped by the booth to say hello and read about her!
Ruby is looking forward to meeting more CWD families next year in Orlando! She is quite the social bear!
