Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As you know, my brother Henry has type 1 diabetes and has been living with it for the past 12 and a half years, since just before he turned three. You knew I had a brother with diabetes, but I bet you didn't know that I have a cousin with diabetes too. My cousin Savannah was diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago, and is already going to college at Clemson University. It might be hard for her because she wasn't as knowledgable about diabetes as my brother is when she went off to college. She had no idea what to do! Now she is starting her sophmore year at Clemson in South Carolina and she knows what she is doing.
When my brother was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, he had to take shots every day which was a big pain in the butt! Now he has a better working device called a pump. The pump helps carry the insulin into his body and tells him how much insulin he needs. It is important to me that we find a cure because I want Savannah and henry to live how they did before. From the day my brother was diagnosed with diabetes to this day we have been looking for a cure ever since!
