BENEFITING: Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi
EVENT DATE: Oct 17, 2015
My reason for fundraising. Jade, my 12 year daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 7. It was hard pill to swallow especially since she was so young and I had no clue about the disease. We had several people to come into our hospital room talking with us about her care and diet. It was hard, but we got used to it and everything started to get better. Now, she is on the pump and it makes it a lot easier to control her blood sugars. These are just some of the things that the Diabetes of Mississippi Fundraisers provide for people living with diabetes. This is a good cause to support!
