Hi Family & Friends,
"Ben Fischin' for a Cure" will be participating in our 11th Walk to Cure Diabetes in February at Mall of America. I am again asking for your support in our fundraising efforts to find a cure for diabetes. As most of you know, I was diagnosed with type one diabetes when I was 7 years old and in second grade...that was 12 years ago!
I am now a sophomore at Winona State University in Winona MN and really like it. My mom and dad still worry about me being away at college with diabetes and not being around all the time. This year I live in a house with 4 roommates and had to teach them about diabetes and what to look for in case I have a low blood sugar.
I still wear an insulin pump which is attached to my abdomen 24/7, which is better than when I was taking 6 shots a day. I test my blood sugar by poking my finger 6-7 times a day to make sure my levels are in range. With all I do to manage my diabetes, I still find myself with high or low blood sugars alot. When I'm high I feel jittery, sweating & confused. When I'm low, I'm shaking, hungry, disoriented & tired. It doesn't feel good!
That's why I ask for your help...I want to find a cure! JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
You can help me reach my goal of raising $3000 by donating to Ben Fischin' for a Cure by clicking the link on the right side of this page. Your tax-deductible donation will mean alot!
Thank you for your support!
