Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
I grew up watching my younger sister battle Type 1 Diabetes and was always in awe of how strong she was.  Little did I know that just one week before my high school graduation I too would be diagnosed with Type 1.  I had just 3 months to learn how to live with this disease before going off to college.  What seemed like impossible quickly became my new normal.  Living with Type 1 has taught me how important it is to take care of myself and eat/live a healthy life.  It has taught me to never take anything for granted and appreciate everything in life.  I am a stronger and healthier person now and refuse to let Type 1 slow me down!

  1. I am so proud of Danielle!!! It is not easy having two daughters with diabetes. Watching them battle the ups and downs is very frustrating. Danielle has strength beyond words can describe. Since being diagnosed in June 2008 not once has she ever complained. She is my hero!!
