My name is Hana and I am 9 years old. I was diagnosed at 2 years old. The funny thing is, no one else in my family has T1D except my second cousin! My great grandpa and my great uncle have T2D. My family and I were at a passover celeration, and I was having alot of accidents. My cousin, who is a doctor, told my mom I should be take to the doctor right away. We went to get a urine test done, and sure enough, I had diabetes. Having diabetes isn't always fun- it never is. It has held me back a lot (School, friends, activities) but it has given me a lot too. I got to go to Children's Congress, and I got to be on the Today Show. I love to attend in adovacy meetings and speaking in front of groups. I will keep helping until the day a cure is found.
