Hi – I’m Katie and I was diagnosed on January 19th, 2010 when I was 15 years old. No one in my family had any type of diabetes before that, and at first I was extremely shaken up. Now almost 7 years later I am about to graduate from Butler University in Indianapolis and am excited to make a difference working at Eli Lilly. It’s tough not to think about how much I miss my life without T1D, but in Jeremiah 29:11 God promises us a hope and a future better than anything we could ever leave behind!
