BENEFITING: Beyond Type 1
ORGANIZER: Beyond Type 1
Hi there! My name is Michelle, and I was diagnosed almost 11 years ago at the age of 12. It is so true that people don't realize the toll that this disease takes. One tiny slip up can really cost you your life. Waiting too long to treat a low... Forgetting a few injections... Accidentally giving the wrong dose (which is so easy to do). Your brain has to be turned on 24/7, and if you stop thinking about your diabetes for too long, it could cost you your life. So it's not a choice. You have to be on high alert all the time.
Personally, Beyond Type 1 has changed my life. Between showing the world how people can live beyond their diagnosis, raising funds for cure research, and all the awareness they raise, I am so grateful for the amazing team behind it all. They will move mountains for the Type 1 community.
Here's to living beyond and helping raise money to better the lives of people with Type 1 all around the world!
