From her dad, David:

We have never known anyone with diabetes. Not anywhere in our families. So almost 10 years ago we had no idea what was going on with our first born, Rylee. We started noticing little things that were strange so eventually we took her into the doctor. “Your daughter has type 1 diabetes,” they said. Talk about a sentence that stops your world dead in its tracks. Those few words changed my baby’s life forever.

It’s now been almost 10 years. I never would have thought that my 16 year old daughter would be my hero. To watch her deal and fight this battle everyday is inspiring. I would take it from her in a heartbeat, but I can’t. So I will continue to do everything I can to ease the hardship of this terrible situation. That’s all we can do.
