Brynn

Age: 8
Age at T1D diagnosis: 1

Living with T1D for Brynn is a family affair: Both her father and her older sister also have the disease. Spreading awareness is a group effort, too. Brynn and her family attend the yearly JDRF Walk, as well as JDRF’s Tee Off for a Cure and the Camp Stix auction, which raises funds for kids with T1D to attend summer camp. “I have no idea of life before diabetes,” says Brynn, who was diagnosed at age 1. “I have always had to poke my fingers, count carbs and give insulin.” But Brynn also has outside interests. She loves playing with My Little Ponies and Monster High games, and is an accomplished tap and jazz dancer. (In fact, each year, she dances in a recital in front of hundreds of people!)
