Team Celia Christine JDRF One Walk
Start: Apr 14, 2021 - End: May 15, 2021
Celia was diagnosed at age 9 with Type 1 Diabetes. She spent a week in the hospital to get her glucose levels under control. Type 1 is an autoimmune disease & the cause is unknown. What we did know, she would have to take insulin every single day until there is a cure.
Celia quickly learned how to count carbohydrates in every meal in order to calculate how munch insulin she needed. For the first 5 months, she had injections for every meal plus a painful injection every night. In January 2010, she upgraded to an insulin pump. The pump gives her insulin 24/7 without having to do daily injections.
Over time, with the generousity of people like you, the technology for glucose monitors & insulin pumps have greatly improved! The technology today offers everyone with Type 1 more freedom & less stress to manage this disease.
The staff at our Eastern IA JDRF office quickly became our friends. They created a safe environment for T1D people to gather, have fun, & offer support and information on the latest research & technology.
Since being diagnosed on 8/31/09 until today, many family members & friends have reached out & supported Celia & our family. We hope you will continue to support Celia & JDRF in efforts to fund a cure and have everyone with T1D live long, healthy lives.
