I'm Michael and I am 9 years old. I've had diabetes since I was 3. Every day I have to poke my finger 7-8 times. I wear an insulin pump that puts insulin into my body instead of having to take shots. My pump is attached to my body 24 hours a day and I have to change my pump site every 2-3 days with a really big needle. If I didn't have insulin, I would get very sick and have to go to the Emergency Room again. I'm thankful for my pump, it keeps me healthy.
Some people may look at me and think I'm just a kid. I may be just a kid, but I know even the smallest hands can change the world of diabetes. I conquer diabetes every day by inspiring, educating, and fundraising for a cure! I've met President Obama at the White House and asked him to join me in my fight. I've shared my story on the news and my walk team has raised over $100,000. in the last 6 years for a cure!
I fight every day, but I'm ready for a break! That break will come when we have a cure for diabetes. By donating to my team you are helping me and millions of others get closer to having a break. Every dollar makes a difference and gets us closer to a CURE. I hope you can support me and my team, Michael's Crew.
I hope you can join me at the walk on Oct. 6th, it's a super fun day!
Thanks again for always helping me!
