On March 23, 2010, I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. It has been a rollercoaster ride since. Every day I have to check my glucose level between 5 and 8 times. This involves pricking my fingers. It hurts, but it is necessary. Without doing this, my blood sugar levels can go way up which can lead to me getting very sick or they can go way down and I could potentially slip into a diabetic coma. I am now on an insulin pump that gives me insulin every hour. This is a lot better than getting a shot every time I eat something. Even though I have this disease, it does not stop me from doing the things I love best. I like to ride horses at Cash Lovell Stables and Riding Academy and I like to play softball. I do wish that they would come up with a cure. That is why I am walking for a cure. Please feel free to come walk with me on October 26, 2013at Wake Forest University BB&T Field.
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!
