Hi, My name is Ayisha Nakooka and I am a teenager living with Type 1 Diabetes and this is my story.
In September of 2007, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Just because I have diabetes doesn't mean I can't live a fairly normal life. Yes, I may have to do extra things before I eat, but I still live my life everyday with a smile!
Since the day I was diagnose, I have wanted to make a difference. This year I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes once again, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million.
Type 1 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! Please donate because even 1 dollar helps! Type 1 diabetics like myself need your help! Please help make a difference in our life and help us find a cure!
