Hi I’m Julianne, I’m 9 years old and I have Type 1 Diabetes. My family and friends will be walking on November 4, 2018 in JDRF One Walk in Pasadena to change the lives of children who have Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
Last year I was hospitalized and was scared when I learned that diabetes would change the lives of kids like me forever. Kids with T1D have no breaks. They have to test their blood sugar, get shots throughout the day and pay close attention to what they eat. We worry about things like if our blood sugar is going to be high or low while we are learning at school, playing with our friends, or just having fun. Our parents and the adults at school have to keep a close eye on us and monitor us throughout the day so that nothing bad happens to us. Thanks to JDRF, my doctor, our Highpoint Academy Family, friends and family, my life is a lot different then it was a year ago.
The exciting research JDRF is funding gives me hope that I or any other child won’t have to live with T1D forever! Please make a donation today to help make a cure possible. Just click on my Personal Page below, register for "Team Julianne" and together we can put an end to Type 1 Diabetes!
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
