Tell your story as to why you want to become a Diabetic Angel or start your own chapter of the Diabetic Angels and maybe your story will be featured!
I am 54 yrs old and was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when I was 8 yrs old. I currently wear an insulin pump. I had the first child delivered by natural childbirth at WVU Medical Center in 1982. I have had many health issues related to my illness but I try to keep going. I am hoping to see a cure in my lifetime. People without diabetes do not realize how many things it affects in your life. I applaud you for what you are doing. When I was diagnosed, there were no other children within 200 miles with diabetes. I felt so alone and frightened. I have been fortunate to have a supporting family and wonderful medical care in my lifetime. Every day is a gift....
