Back to Kid' Voices Sara


My name is Sara. I was diagnosed with Diabetes on January 16, 2006 when I was 5 years old. Now I have Diabetes like my older brother John.

My Mommy and Daddy suspected I had Diabetes because I got very tired and starting going to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Now, I have a pump and a continuous glucose monitor to make sure I am safe.

I love all sports: soccer, basketball, tennis, and softball.

I love school and I try to not let Diabetes slow me down!

My mom and Dad had to take me to the emergency room once because I got so low that I couldn't talk for 4 hours. They were real scared!

We need a cure.
