Have you ever heard the expression:  "love will find a way?" Meet Nancy Gaudet-Aittaniemi.  A very successful senior vice president for a commercial real estate company, Nancy's success story is not just about climbing the ladder to take on a leadership role in a male-dominated industry.  It is about the power of a mother's love for her child. You see, Nancy's only child was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at only 9, and his chronic condition led her down a path that has been both terrifying and inspiring. Faced with the decision to stay stuck in her grief and hover over him or to let her son experience life to the fullest, Nancy chose to show Ryan that he could do anything he put his mind to.  Now a sophomore in college, Ryan is a seasoned bike enthusiast who has ridden in juvenile diabetes fundraising challenges in the United States and Europe.  As the leader of a monthly support group for Type 1 Moms, Nancy has taken other parents by the hand and has been a passionate volunteer and supporter of the JDRF,  the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes.  She is currently training to ride in her 4th bike race:  the Amelia Island Ride To Cure Diabetes and her coach?  You guessed it, Nancy's son Ryan.   #JDRFRide    #storybehindhersuccess    #16LifeLessons    #mydoveproductions
