Welcome to my Personal Page
Welcome to my fundraising page!
I am asking you to support me in the Tour de Cure® because finding a cure for diabetes means so much to me.
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 4. My parents started to notice symptoms around the 4th of July. I was thirsty all the time and more hungry than normal. One morning I woke up and told my mom it was blurry to see. She rushed me to the doctors and we found out my blood sugar was over 500. Way above the normal of 100. 5 years later, and I still have diabetes. And it is my hope that one day a cure will be found and I will no longer have to take insulin to stay alive, because it is not a disease I just outgrow. I wear two medical devices that have little cannulas under my skin 24-7. Some days I don't notice them, but more times than not, they are bothersome. But I keep them on because they make me feel better. And at only 9 years old, I know that they keep my alive.
I joined the Tour de Cure because today alone over 4,100 people will be diagnosed and because more than 30 million adults and children in the United States are living with this terrible disease incuding me.
Help Me Reach My Goal!
When you donate:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.
- You fund life-saving research.
