From her mom, Carrie:
Braedyn was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of six during her Thanksgiving break from Kindergarten. She has never let diabetes slow her down and has never looked back. As a sophomore in high school, Braedyn plays volleyball, shows cattle and goats through FFA and 4-H, participates in One Act Play, and is active in her community. She will tell you she doesn’t really remember not having diabetes so it is just part of her and she lives everyday to the fullest!
