Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page for Chasing a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

Autoimmune Type 1 Diabetes is something that affects me and my family every day and influences everything in my life. I was diagnosed with this condition when I was eight years old.

I would love to have my freedom back and just be me again. Freedom from pricking my fingers many times a day to check my blood sugars. Freedom from feeling sick from having high or low blood sugars. Freedom to hang with my friends without worrying about my safety if my blood sugars should go low. Freedom from sticking needles in my tummy. Freedom from my parents checking me through the night. Freedom from worrying that I won’t wake in the morning.

To see how diabetes affects us, please take a couple of minutes to watch our video. I would love you to support my fundraising for the Spinal Cord Society on their journey to finding kids like me a cure.

The wonderful scientists at SCSNZ have been researching adult stem cells and their ability to halt the autoimmune attack that stops my pancreas from producing insulin. Their research programme has the opportunity to provide life changing medical treatment for over 25,000 kiwis with Type 1 Diabetes.

Please donate to my fundraiser. One day, one click, one minute, one time…thank you!

From Keisha xx
