Welcome to team Luke's Sky Walkers JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!

My name is Luke, I am 5 years old and have Type 1 diabetes. I found out that I had diabetes in August of 2012. I had to go potty a lot, and was very thirsty. My life is very different now, compared to this time last year. It breaks Mommy & Daddy's heart, because I remember when I was not a diabetic. So far this year I have had my finger "poked" to check my blood sugar 4,000 times! I have had 1,350 injections of insulin, I really hate that part! In April of this year I got an insulin pump. I was so very excited when the mail man delivered it to my door step!! This was a very happy day. I was thrilled that I did not have to get as many shots now. I also have a continious glucose monitor (CGM). This helps my Mommy and Daddy to see trends in my blood sugar and make adjustments to my insulin dose. I wear both my pump and CGM (I named "Lenny") 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Diabetes NEVER takes a break!

On the outside you would never know I have diabetes. I like to play with friends, and have fun like every 5 year old. I really don't talk about my diabetes very much, but I will if you ask me a question. I don't like to let it get me down, but sometimes that is hard. Daddy and Mommy tell me I am very brave and they are proud of me. I love them.

Please come walk with me:)

Love,

Luke
