If you are reading this, than you are already helping me and my sister, Olivia. We have been battling Type 1 Diabetes for a total of 8 years. I was diagnosed a little over four years ago when I was 8 and my sister was diagnosed eight years ago when she was just 3. We are now 13 and 10 and would love to have a cure! For me, I can't imagine how we will handle all of the demands of high school and college while testing our blood sugar 8 to 10 times a day. Or staying up all night and keeping our blood sugar stable while trying to study and eat regular kid food. My sister is hoping that a cure can happen sometime soon as she already has grown up in a world of needles, pokes and blood draws. Not fun for any kid. I have to agree!
To help us you can do three things:
1.) Sign up for our walk team; Naturally Sweet Sisters and come join us at the East Lansing Michigan State University Walk to cure Type 1 Diabetes on August 2, 2014.
2.) Make a donation to yourself or to someone on our team.
3.) Spread the word and tell everyone you know about the Naturally Sweet Sisters and why a cure is so important. You can also refer your friends that would like more information to www.naturallysweetsisters.com.
And a HUGE thank you for helping. Your support helps all kids, adults and families that live with Type 1 Diabetes. Thank you for stepping us closer to a CURE!
