Will's Story

My name is Will Stidd. I am 14 years old and have had type 1 diabetes for four years. Diabetes is very hard to deal with. I’m in constant watch of my blood sugars. If my blood sugar is high, I can have complications down the road, and if my blood sugar is low, I have to take immediate action as I could go so low that I could die. JDRF has helped me so much with my diabetes. I am now on a pump and a continuous glucose monitor, which helps me control my diabetes. Please help me and many others with trying to find a cure; if there was a cure, I could live a normal life without the stress of diabetes, and my family could also lead a normal life.
