Did you know type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune form of the disease?
The body destroys it's own ability to produce insulin. Crazy, right?!
It almost always strikes in adolescence.
These kids must inject insulin every single day, multiple times a day for the rest of their lives to live. They must prick their fingers multiple times a day and night to test their blood sugar levels. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. AND. NIGHT. Diabetes doesn't sleep. :(
Ryan is one of these kids, diagnosed at 24 months old.
Ryan "can't wait to not have diabetes anymore" because she is hopeful there will be a cure. She has HOPE!
Did you know YOU can help make her hope reality? Yes, YOU!
