I'm participating in Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes!

My name is Maddy Fletcher. Last year I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I want to help cure this disease somewhat soon so I can feel normal again. Before I was diagnosed, I could do whatever I wanted and I could be a regular 12 year old girl. This disease has taken a huge toll on my life. I now have to take 5-10 insulin shots and I have to test my blood sugar before every meal and before I go to bed. I also have to be careful when I play sports because my blood sugar can go up and downn very quickly which can make me tired. I also have to calculate carbs before I eat a meal so I can take the correct amount of insulin to cover all the carbs. This disease is hard for me to take care of so I am hoping you join my team to help me cure this disease. Here is this year's video from JDRF about Beat the Bridge Walk. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XF2bh0yC30U

 Thank you so much for reading this!
