Easton's Story

Hello. My name is Easton. I am 7 years old and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 2 years old. I am so grateful for my family, Dr. Corley, Dr. Griesen, and the staff at my school for helping me manage my diabetes. It is not easy being the only kid in school with diabetes. I wear a pump that gives me insulin. I poke my fingers often— over 25,000 times so far. My mom says God blessed me with diabetes because I am special. Some days I don’t feel special. I walk every year to help find a cure, so that someday I don’t have to get anymore pokes or be different. I would really appreciate your support by walking or donating to JDRF to help find a cure!
