I am really excited about going to Children's Congress! I can't wait to meet my legislators and talk with them about how diabetes affects my life day to day. I want them to understand how important finding a cure for diabetes is to my whole family.
I have had my picture taken with Nathan Deal and Max Cleland (when he was in office). My mom is really involved with raising awareness in our county. She is the co-chair for a volunteer walk that began three years ago.
Meeting other kids will be GREAT! Sometimes it's just nice to be around other kids and you don't have to explain why you're pricking my finger or explain your pump. Everyone has a different story about when they were diagnosed, but we all have one thing in common: WE WANT A CURE for diabetes.
