TeamBretMichaels.com / LifeRocksFoundation.org Story: Kindra Stays Positive About Diabetes

TeamBretMichaels.com / LifeRocksFoundation.org Story: Kindra Stays Positive About Diabetes

I was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes at the age of 4. It was the toughest time in mine and my family’s life, as it is for all children and the people who love them. One of my hardest times was in the hospital. It was hard for me to understand that every shot and finger poke was not the last one. That this was now a part of my new
life. I looked at my mom with big tears in my eyes and said Mom, I can’t do this and my Mom replied with bigger tears in her eyes and said Yes, you can and I have!

That was 10 years ago and now I am a healthy and happy 13 year old girl. I am a great student and gets good grades, I dances in competitions and have won numerous rewards, I love to be involved in the diabetic community doing the JDRF walks and attending the FCYD camps. And working with my mom and her club meeting with newly diagnosed kids at the hospital. And if you asked me today if I minds having diabetes, I will say, not really…

TeamBretMichaels.com / LifeRocksFoundation.org Story: Paige Builds Lasting Friendships At Diabetes Camp

TeamBretMichaels.com / LifeRocksFoundation.org Story: Paige Builds Lasting Friendships At Diabetes Camp

I can’t thank Bret Michaels and the Life Rocks Foundation enough for sending me to diabetes camp last summer (2013). Camp is the one thing I look forward to all year. For me camp is better than Christmas or birthdays or any other holiday. Camp is a time for me to see my friends that I’ve made there, to do fun activities, have fun, and for once feel like a “normal” kid. Since everyone at camp has diabetes, you no longer have to be embarrassed or feel like an outcast because everyone there is the same as you. Over the years, my camp friends no longer just feel like friends, they feel like family and without camp, I would have never met them.

My camp friends now come to my house and stay for weeks at a time and I visit them as well, so we keep our friendships going throughout the year and not just a week at camp. Along with making friends, we do different activities everyday. Some activities we do are: swimming, jet skiing, tubing, boating, rock climbing, high ropes, archery, paintball, dodge ball, volleyball, horseback riding, and many others. My favorite activities are jet skiing, and the high ropes. Every year when camp is over we cry saying goodbye to our new and old friends and are already waiting for next year to come.

Thank you for making all this possible.
