I was born and raised in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. I finished high school and decided to attend college at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. I will receive my Bachelor's degree through the Health, Environment, and Science Department specializing in Exercise Science and Coaching in the Summer of 2014. At school I am a member of the Cross Country, Indoor Track, and Outdoor track teams. After my first semester at college, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. For some reason or another, my pancreas decided it didn't want to make insulin anymore. The purpose of this page is to raise money for the research and better treatment and medicine for people with type 1 diabetes. Being diagnosed at the age of 18 really had a huge impact on my life. People with type 1 diabetes really have to think about every little thing they do and eat which most people take for granted. Your support sends a message to everyone living with diabetes that they are not alone … and that together, we will STOP DIABETES!
