Hello everybody. Thank you for taking the time to read my story/description. My name is Dave, I'm a 17 year old boy from Boston currently attending high school at a private school. Although I'm not poor, doesn't mean I can afford the things I need in life. I'll never forget the date: March 13, 2007. This was the day my life completely changed. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at only the age of 9. My family was heartbroken. However, I am very grateful that it wasn't worse. There is kids who are younger than me who suffer from much more severe diseases, also cancer. Since tuition is high and medical bills for my diabetes supplies, insulin, etc. is VERY expensive, my parents have asked me to work a part time job to help chip in. I just successfully acquired my driver's license last week. My parents do a lot for me which I do appreciate, but they have told me buying me a used car will be a very difficult thing to accomplish. I'm asking out of kindness and humbly, if you would like to make a donation of anything you can afford: $5, $10, $20 etc., it would be deeply appreciated. Thank you for your time and generosity. May God bless you and please make a donation towards a Cure for Diabetes!
