My name is Johnny Marinakis and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in August last year.
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease that can strike at any time. It affects more than 120,000 Australian families and 7 people are diagnosed every day.
I was only 6 years old when I was diagnosed and it was very scary for me. I started off having 4 injections per day. One before every meal and one before I went to sleep at night. I also have to prick my finger 4-6 times a day to measure my blood glucose level.
About 4 months ago I was lucky enough to get my pump which now administers my insulin so that I dont have to have all those horrible injections anymore. But there has been a lot for my mum to learn.
It is very important to me that the research continues to find a cure, prevent and better treat this chronic disease I have and this is why on October 20th I am taking part in the JDRF One Walk to turn Type 1 into Type None!
Please DONATE NOW and support my walk to change the lives of Australians with Type 1 Diabetes.
It would also be great to have you by my side to walk with me to make a difference.
Hugs and kisses
