My name is Meghan Penske. I am almost 15 years old. Six years ago, when I was 8, I was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes. I never wanted anyone to know that I was “different” from them so I only told my close friends.
Recently, I have realized that being different is a good thing. My diabetes makes me unique. I want to show people that this is just another thing that makes you “cool”.
I want to share my stories and journey with everyone. I am hoping this will make a difference in someones life that is just coming to terms with T1D.
This is a lifelong disease and we all have to stick together. With your help, we can make Type One, Type None.
