I've been a type 1 diabetic since the young age of 12! Now, I'm only 20 and it's already damaged both kidneys, my bladder, and part of my digestive system. It's also contributed to me having to live my life in a wheelchair. I know I am not alone. Around 15,000 children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the USA every year! That's just in the US, imagine all the other countries!! Juvenile diabetes can be very devastating. Let's join together and find a cure!
