GRACIE'S WALK FOR A CURE FOR TYPE 1 DIABETES
Organized by: Elizabeth Richards
EVENT DATE Sep 17, 2016
Gracie was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes February 8th, 2014 after almost 8 months of being wrongfully diagnosed with the flu and stomach bugs. Her sugar when found was 938 and she should have been dead or in a coma but by the grace of God she was fine. She is on many injections daily and she must do do or she will die. She's been in DKA many times and the longest time was for 2 weeks. She recently was diagnosed with gastroparesis which is caused by having high sugars for so long it has damaged the nerves in her gastrointestinal organs. She will be walking September 17th in Greer Sc for JDRF and all donations will go to them for research for a cure. So one day she can say she no longer has Type 1 Diabetes.
