Hi, my name is Lexi and I am 10 years old.
On the 23rd of December 2016, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It was a big shock to me and my family, especially as we were really looking forward to Christmas! Thankfully, I managed to have a lovely Christmas at home with all my family and I am now getting to grips with living with Type 1 Diabetes.
There is no cure for Type 1 Diabetes at the moment, but charities, such as JDRF, are trying to change this. So I'm asking everyone out there to support and sponsor me with my make a splash sponsored swim where I will be swimming 2.1 miles.
I'd be really grateful for all your support in this so I can raise as much money as possible.
