Dear Family & Friends,
Hello! This year on October 19th, we will be taking part once again in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes at Centennial Olympic Park. We formed "Team Montse's camina para la cura" for you to join us in this event.
Montse was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on 12/02/2009. We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: TO FIND A CURE!
Our lives changed forever the day she was diagnosed and became insulin dependent. As of today Montse has endured over 7,300 fingerpricks, 1800 shots & 190 pump site changes! This will continue every day of her life unless a cure is found. She can never go anywhere without her diabetes supplies: glucose meter, glucose strips, pricker, insulin, pump, sugar tabs, etc. Diabetes goes with her everywhere including school, exercise, vacation and during sleep. Unfortunately, there is never a carefree time.
But as a family, we learned TO HAVE FUN with diabetes, we get special treatment when visiting theme parks! (we don't do the lines for the rides), Montse has learned so much about T1D so when other kids ask her about her pump or the pod she wears in different locations of her body she explains how it works and other kids learn about T1D! we cook healthier food at home! We always play a game to guess her glucose levels when we are ready to eat (winner gets to pick a dessert!), so as you can see not all is bad, basically you make the best out of it!
