I am Lia and I'm 9 years old. I have type 1 diabetes. I got diabetes when I was 5 years old. It is not a fun disease. I have to check my blood sugar, by poking my finger several times a day. There are lots of times when I do not feel well because my blood sugar is either too high or too low. Even when I do everything right, blood sugar can still be wrong.
Type 1 diabetes is a disease that I got because for some reason my pancreas stopped working. It cannot be stopped and there is no cure.
Once again, my family and I and walking for a cure with JDRF. JDRF is awesome. They raise a lot of money every year to help me and others find a cure and get better treatments for diabetes.
Please support me and donate if you can. Even $5...every little bit helps!
Thank you so much!
