Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team MERCY page!
My first experience with diabetes came via my great grandma and my grandpa. Both of them had to take daily injections to be sure they were healthy.
Later I learned that there are kids like me that have to do the same things my grams and papaw have to do. I know that when my brother Kaiden was in the hospital he was scared every time the nurses had to use a needle on him. I thought about all those kids that have to do this throughout the day to be healthy and I knew I wanted to help make a difference! I want to help the kids that are my age and that my become adults that have to live with diabetes.
I have had great role models to learn more about this from and I decided this year that I wanted to be Team Captain! Each person that donates will get a very cool bracelet that I designed with our team name on it. Donate $1 or more or simply walk with us every little bit helps to finding a cure!
