Do you know what diabetes looks like?
It looks like a daughter, a granddaughter, a niece, a big sister, a little sister, and even a twin sister.
I am 10 years old and in fifth grade. I love to bike ride, play at the park, read books, build puzzles, and act goofy. I am a typical kid.
On September 29, 2007, I was diagnosed with Juvenile (type 1) Diabetes.
My life would never be the same again.
A carefree child hood was no longer in the cards for me.
Kids with Type 1 Diabetes face the very real threat of diabetic complications of heart disease, kidney failure, loss of limbs, blindness, seizures and coma.
And my life expectancy is 15 years shorter than my twin sister?s.
Every year in America over 15,000 kids are diagnosed with Juvenile (type 1) Diabetes. And the number continues to rise.
I will not grow out of this one day.
It will be with me every day until a cure is found.
Once again this year, I will be taking part in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with a half-million others nationwide.
My life depends on insulin. A cure depends on EVERYONE!
