I have had type 1 diabetes for 19 years, since I was 5-years-old. I have been involved with Camp Hot Shots since I was 7-years-old.
I started as a camper and loved every minute of it! Camp showed me that I wasn’t the only one with type 1 diabetes. It gave me the courage to fight this disease because I knew that I wasn’t the only one fighting it.
I’ve met friends through camp that I still have today. The people that I have met are not just friends. Through camp meetings, the three days of camp, and the 15+ years that we have known each other, we have become a family.
