My name is Taite Randal Hammer and I have Type 1 Diabetes. I'm in 1st grade in Mrs. Robins class, 1a. My favorite subject at school is math. I like to sing at music and play freeze tag at gym. There are no other kids in my school with Diabetes. My nurse's name is Mrs. Johnson, she helps take care of me and my blood sugar.
I've had Type 1 Diabetes for 5 whole years and I'm 6 years old. I got Diabetes because my pancreas doesn't work. To get insulin, you tell the pump how much insulin you want by pressing buttons on my pump.
When i'm low, I feel kinda sleepy and tired. I feel icky inside. When I'm high, I feel like I want to run around.
We're trying to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. We give the money to JDRF. I think they'll find a cure because there are smart people there, like doctors and scientists.
I was sad when my brother got Diabetes because I was worried that he had to get tested too. I just didn't want him to have Diabetes.
Please help us find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes for everyone that has it. Thank you
