Hi, my name is Kayla. I am 11 years old, and I was diagnosed with diabetes on March 29th 2003. My brother Trevor was diagnosed 8 1/2 months before I was.
I am already giving myself injections, and I am doing really good at it. My mom and dad are so proud of me. Diabetes will not keep me from playing soccer, basketball, or my favorite thing, Skate Boarding.
I am learning so much everyday about this disease, and how I can take good care of myself so I can have a very long and happy life. The love from my mom and dad and brothers keep me going, I love them very much. That's my story.
