Sarah Cracraft: Year Six
Wake up. Check blood sugar. Head to the gym. Get home. Check blood sugar. Get ready for work. Grab something to eat. Head to work. This is my morning. Every few days I add the set, sensor, or insulin change. I am a type one diabetic and its been 20 years.
I was diagnosed December 26, 1996. I was six. Over the years, I grew up and watched medical technology grow too. A diabetic can wear an insulin pump instead of taking shots. A continous glucose monitoring system was developed. The FDA approved the artificial pancreas!!!!! There have been so many advancements and they are still coming!
I registered to participate in the Tour de Cure for my sixth year and I am now raising money to not only prevent diabetes, but to fight the consequences and to improve the lives of all of those affected. I want a cure so all diabetics don't need to take shots, wear insulin pumps, continuos glucose montoring systems, or prick their fingers multiple times a day to make sure they are okay.
So many people are affected by diabetes and we can do something about this disease. Please donate to the American Diabetes Association on my behalf. We can make a change.
Every donation makes such a big difference. The money we raise for the Association funds critical diabetes research, information programs, and advocacy efforts that support the nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. with diabetes, and the 86 million with pre-diabetes.
I am forever grateful for all of those willing to help and thank you for supporting me!
