Johnny Marinakis

I'm walking for a world without type one diabetes

Team Johnny

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
