Cynthia was diagnosed in 2008 at age 11 with Type 1 diabetes. She finished the LA Marathon in 2010 and will complete her 2nd this March! See more
Cynthia checks her blood sugars every time she eats and every night at bedtime. She checks more often during her all-star and travel softball tournaments and while she runs, to catch her "lows". She wears a pump full of insulin and calculates the insulin she needs based on the amount of carbs she is taking in. INSULIN IS NOT A CURE. JDRF funds reasearch for a cure. Cynthia and millions of other kids like her dream of a life without the worry of a high or low, and without the fear of complications from this disease. Funding research for a cure is our chance to see that life become a reality.
