Welcome to Larissa Rinkel's Personal Page
Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2000, I was only 3 years old. The past 13 years have been an experience. When I was in the fifth grade I got a pump from medtronics. I have been to Camp NeedlePoint in Wisconsin, which is just for diabetics. Diabetes is my life and i wouldn't change it one bit. With a little help from family and friends anything is possible. Thank you to everyone who has heloped me through the rough times.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. There is some good news, though. 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.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
