BELLA LOVES DFM- Type 1 Diabetes

THE STORY:

My name is Bella Nichols, I got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes whenever I was 5. I'm 8 now so I've had diabetes for three years! It was hard at first. A whole bunch changed in my life and I had to get used to having diabetes. I had to poke my finger to check my blood sugar and get shots all the time. Sometimes I say I hate having diabetes, but I would not have a lot of my friends if I didn't have diabetes. We get to go to Camp Kandu, the most wonderful place in the whole world! Miss Irena is like a grandmother to me- she's really sweet and nice and so is Miss Mary. They really are! It's really fun to go to DFM and visit too! Camp Kandu is a camp for kids that have diabetes. There's swings that go almost 50 feet off the ground and a big treehouse that is three stories tall and a huge slide. That's almost best part. But the best part is making new friends! Because everyone has diabetes and we all check our blood sugar together- nobody is different. We do karate and canoeing. I even went swimming in the lake with my cousin Caleb. He has type 1 diabetes like me! The other great thing about DFM is that I get to go to the hospital and meet kids who just found out they have diabetes. I get to take them a backpack of fun stuff and tell them about life with diabetes. And to comfort them, and tell them what it's like. My mom goes too. She always talks to the parents for a long time and tells them what it's like too. Sometimes the parents look really tired or cry, but they always get a big hug from my mom when we leave. And they are always calling her too. It's like she thinks she's a diabetes doctor or something. I am raising money for DFM to help kids who need help with their diabetes. Sometimes they need insulin and Miss Irena will send it to them. She came to my school and taught my teachers how to take care of me. They do that too! And every kid with diabetes needs to go to camp Kandu. I want to raise enough to give kids what they need, like 800 million dollars! Can you please, pretty please with sprinkles on top, help me raise money for DFM? Love, Bella Nichols
