Jolynn, 16 - Nevada USA
I was just diagnosed with type one diabetes. I am still getting used to it. Unfortunately, I do not know any other diabetics. It would be nice to change that. I paint, sing, and play some piano.

Foster, 7 - Missouri
I am a 7 year old with Type 1 Diabetes. I found out last October right before Halloween. I have worked very hard to take care of my body since I found out because it's sometimes very scary. I like to play basketball, baseball, swim, and am in 4-H. My family is very active together. My whole school has learned about diabetes.
