Story

Thank you for looking at my page.

My name is Neve and I got Type 1 Diabetes in November 2015. Living with Type 1 Diabetes is hard because I have to prick my fingers to test my blood 10 times a day and they get sore. I have to take insulin to keep me alive and sometimes it hurts putting the cannulas in. Sometimes I get hypos when my blood sugar goes low and I have to drink lucozade even if I don't want to, especially in the night time.  These things are all hard and I want to help JDRF find a cure to help people who have Type 1 Diabetes.

I'm going to swim 2.1 miles which is 135 lengths of my swimming pool from now until 3rd April 2017.

Please sponsor me, even if it's only a £1 as it all helps.

Thank you!
