My name is Ryley Eckert, I am 20 years old and have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for 8 years.
Being diagnosed with Diabetes was a huge shock, adjusting my daily routine and life style to injecting 4 times a day, checking my BGL and counting the amount of Carbohydrates I consume every day was a big change but is something that comes natural now. Having Diabetes is a roller coaster as every day isn't the same but when you figure out what works for you, it makes life just that little bit easier.
Every year I have fundraised money for the Walk to Cure but this year I have decided to do more and step outside my comfort zone by participating in the Jump to Cure. Thinking about jumping out of a plane scares me like you wouldn’t believe, but I know that if I can do it I can get through anything this world throws at me.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am passionate about Type 1 Diabetes and fundraising to help get a step closer to finding a cure and turning Type 1 into Type 0.
Thank you for your continuous support and your kind donation.
