Annie & Carolina as Diabetes Princesses - then (2005) & now!
We will turn Type One into Type None
Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes for the Diabetes Princesses page!
Our names are Annie Stang & Carolina Schuster. We are 12 years old, and we are your Team Captains. We have both had type 1 diabetes since we were 3 and 4 years old - and we want to find a cure! Will you help us?
We were both diagnosed in the same year, just months apart, in preschool. It was pretty shocking. It was hard for us and our families - but our wonderful teacher Ms. Sue made us feel special by calling us The Diabetes Princesses. We've been great friends ever since.
It hasn't been a picnic - between us we've had thousands of shots and finger pokes - but life is getting better, and we're getting closer to a cure - we really are! The finish line is in sight! With your help - we can cure diabetes by the time we hit our 20's! We are that close!
Please - join us at the Mall of American on Feb 22 - it's early, but it's fun! We'll send you a t-shirt, and promise to be the best and biggest team in the big Walk To Cure Diabetes. It's our first year joining teams (we used to be Team Carolina and Friends of Annie) - but we figure TOGETHER we CAN BEAT THIS!
Also - this year, sadly but with love, we welcome our newest Diabetes Princess, Morgan. She is Annie's 4 -year-old cousin, and was diagnosed just this year. Put your tiara, Morgan! You are going to be ok - we'll make sure of it.
Please make a donation before you leave this page... and thank you! From the bottom of our hearts (and our pancreases). :)
with our love and thanks,
Carolina & Annie (& Morgan) The DIABETES PRINCESSES
