Camp Sweet Life Champion Runner Gail Graupman
I am committed to helping Camp Sweet Life because they have made a life-changing impact on my daughter. When she was first diagnosed and before she went to camp, she didn't want to eat because it meant taking shots and she didn't like being different than everyone else. After camp she came home energized and knowing that she wasn't alone in all of this.
People need to understand how important it is for kids with Type 1 to know there are others out there just like they are; and camp does that for these kids. The kids live everyday having to test their blood sugar and counting carbs and their friends don't. But at camp, they are all the same.
