Hi everyone - thanks for checking out my Team Julia walk letter. It's hard to believe that is has been SIX years that I have lived with type 1 diabetes. It has not been easy. Every day I dream that someone will find a cure!!!!!
Since I'm a preteen, I had a tough year managing my diabetes - growing throws diabetes a curve ball, and my emotions can get in the way too. Yuck! But my parents, family and friends are always there to support me, so I thank everybody so much for their help!!
And there's another thing - please remind kids you know not to bully those of us with conditions we can't control. For the past 3 years, I've been called "disease girl." It's hurtful and I want it to stop.
Thanks for listening. It would help so much if you could donate to my walk team this year. Thank you!!!
