THE STORY:

I am going to run my very first Marathon in Cleveland Ohio, on May 18th 2014. I kept thinking what can I run for? Then it came to me, diabetes! Let's raise awareness!  Make sure when you donate, if you have a loved one that you want me to run for, leave their names, so I can run in their honor!!

I would love to dedicate this to my best friend Tammy, she's been fighting this battle since she was 9!!!!! Here is her story, she is AMAZING!


I was diagnosed at 9 years old I had lost a lot of weight was thirsty all the time using the bathroom a lot and very weak tired, my family and I had to learn how to give me insulin shots 4 times a day plus I had to prick my finger with a needle 4 times a day to check my sugar level,mph life was living by the clock had to take a shot and eat meals and snacks at certain times even I school and sometimes my sugar would go to low and my symptoms were dizzy shaky sweaty confusion so I would have to drink juice or milk or in an emergency anything with sugar there are many struggles with this disease imy cold compared to a normal persons cold is like me having the flu not only do I have the cold symptoms I also have to keep my sugar under control which sometimes can't be helped , also stress effects ur sugar ,it can go high and that is dangerous there are many complications that come with diabetes such as blindness kidney failure amputations now that I'm older I have an insulin pump which makes my life more flexible and keeps me in better control I can't say there is anything good about diabetes it has been a struggle all my life I wish they would find a cure if not in my lifetime at least for the future.

Please help me raise awareness! Let's find A CURE!!!!!!
