Hannah Rose is a normal 11 year old girl. She likes hanging out with her friends, going to the movies, shopping at the mall, and playing with her little sister. She likes to ice skate, doesn't like to clean her room, and enjoys sleeping in on the weekends. Sounds just like every other kid her age. Except she has to live everyday managing a lifelong chronic disease. In November 2012 she was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. Meaning that her pancreas stopped producing insulin. Insulin is needed to live, so in order to live a long healthy life, she must inject herself with insulin 4-5 times per day. Everything she eats must be planned, and weighed out. She has to poke a finger to test her blood up to six times per day to make sure that everything is balanced out. She makes me proud everyday by handling this with stride as she follows all the rules set by her doctor, which most kids her age fail to do.
There are many support groups and events that will help her deal with this new lifestyle that she was forced to live with. Our friends and family have been wonderfully supportive as well. The main support system that we are working towards now is Diabetes Summer Camp. She is so excited to go, and spend a week with hundreds of children with the same chronic disease as her. She will see firsthand that she is not alone in this and that everything will be ok, even if it doesn't always seem that way. The only thing stopping us currently is the cost. Camp cost $650 per child! We will do whatever we can to raise this money, but as a single mother, i decided to ask for help. If you or someone you know would like to help us, we would forever be greatful to you. Help can come in the form of an idea, an item donated that we can sell in a garage sale, a baked item that we can sell in a bake sale, or even a monetary donation. We will be making t-shirts and bracelets that we will be selling as well. All that said, if you would like to help out with anything, please email me your information to Julia3782@yahoo.com.
