Rachel Brown Tompkins
29 Years Diabetic, and nothing can stop me! No child should have to endure this diagnosis and all that comes with it, while there have been many advances in care since my diagnosis, the CURE is what I am working for. Please help me by supporing me and the American Diabetes Association. I will be competing in the Tough Mudder Half in Michigan (where I was diagnosed just after my 10th birthday. (My only sibling was also Type 1 diabetic, diagnosed at age 10, five years prior to my diagnosis! So literally, Diabetes has ALWAYS been a part of my life. I would LOVE to not have diabetes, to not have the struggles that I do, so I continue to raise funds with hopes that one day I can finally say "I used to have diabetes" and more than that, to know that other children (and adults) will never have to endure the things that I (and those that love me and care about me) have. In order to run Tough Mudder, I will have to train HARD, all while being able to maintain stable bloodsugars and hydration so that I can meticulously plan for anything as I will be running the event without my insulin pump or my constant glucose monitor. If I have to crawl, I will make it to the finish line! Thank YOU for your support!
