This is my daughter, Lauren. She is 9 years old. She was diagnosed one week after her 4th birthday. She doesn’t remember life before diabetes. And even though she lived 4 years without it, I don’t remember her not having diabetes. She is in 4th grade and succeeds in school. She plays volleyball and is a cheerleader. She is the strongest person I have ever met and I’m grateful she calls me “Momma”.
