Welcome to "Madeira's Marcher"s Walk to Cure Diabetes personal page!

On January 15, 2013 my life was changed forever.  I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.  It is a 24/7 disease that never gives me a break (or my parents!)  I have to check my blood sugar many times a day, get insulin injections just to stay alive, and count every carb I eat!  Can you imagine not being able to eat a snack after school or whenever you want?? It isn't fun!  But I have learned to give myself my own insulin injections which is pretty cool. 

JDRF is so important to me and my family.  They are working SO hard to find a cure for me and so many others who have Type 1 so we can live freely.  I really hope you can join my team, walk, and donate to help find a cure!  No amount is too small!!

Thank you for all of your love, support, and concern.  The walk is only a few months away!  I hope to see you all on November 8th for the Walk to help raise money to find a cure for me and so many others!!

Lots of love,

Madeira da Luz
