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.
