Blake, 8 - Illinois

My name is Blake. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when I was 6 years old. My favorite sports are baseball and football. I have a Bernese Mountain dog named Frisco. Sometimes I just don't like my diabetes. Last summer I was on the 7 year old All Star baseball team, so I know I can do anything even though I have diabetes. I would love to hear from you and hear about your life with diabetes.

Bryson, 4 - Illinois

Hi i am Bryson and I am 4 years old. I was told that i have diabetes in November 2009. I don't like getting my fingers poked but my mommy has told me that it will help the doctor help me to feel better. I don't like the insulin shots either! i am getting use to some of the changes and i got to show all my friends at school what i have to do now that i have diabetes! Mommy and I have done a lot of research that has helped us understand it. and i get to wear a dog tag that says "I HAVE DIABETES" i have a big brother and a little sister and they watch me get all this done so i don't cry and i tell my sissy that it makes me better.
