Hi! I am Jessica and I am 17 years old. I will be 18 in October. My mom has diabetes. We knew she was getting it because she could drink so much soda and eat alot but still lose weight. Right now she is on the verge of diabetes. We are praying it overpasses but we know it won't. My mom is a very lovely lady. She takes care of me and my puppy Princess very well.

I love to read and do arts and crafts. I like to color with crayons and markers. I am looking for a penpal who has diabetes so they can help me help my mom. I am very worried.
