Hi, I’m Hennessy!
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 10 years old in January 2018. I am a proud diabetic and I am not afraid to share my story.
I am joining Lace Up to bring awareness and help support the cause to End Diabetes. Diabetes affects so many people, both young and old around the world. With medical advancements, we should be aiming to end diabetes now!
This September, I will be doing 45 minutes of physical activity every day. I will make a calendar and mark each successful day with a sticker. I am motivated by knowing I’m doing my best.
I would like to be a role model and inspire other teens with Type 1 diabetes to help them feel proud of who they are and living with diabetes.
Thank you for supporting me!
