Hi! My name is Marley, I'm 11 years old and live in Paso Robles. About three years ago I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, since then my life has changed quite a bit. Before finally getting an insulin pump I had to have at least four shots of insulin just to eat my daily meals and remain healthy. In the short time I had to take shots I had to have over 5000 shots! Now that I am on the pump my life is easier but still is quite different then the average 11 year old who can eat anything and with out counting carbs and taking insulin. I'll be living with type 1 Diabetes for the rest of my life so its really important for me to do my part in heloing JDRF on thier mission to find a cure! Three years ago my family and Icreated a team, Marley's Marching Monkeys, and decided to join in the effort to help find a cure for diabetes!
By sponsoring me or any of my team members you can help us in our efforts. Please feel free to read over all of the information found on the JDRF website to see how your sponsorship can help. Also if you have kids please take the time to learn more about the signs of diabetes, in the three days I spent at the Children's Hospital in Madera that summer there were five children diagnosed with diabetes!
