Layla's Insulin Pump and Monitor

$1,000 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 21 people in 12 months
Hi! I am Layla Williams and I am 7 years old.  I was diagnosed this past June with Type 1 Diabetes.  For those of you that may not know, this type makes me insulin dependent the rest of my life.  My pancreas has become a dead organ.  I have to have up to 15 blood checks (finger pokes) and up to 6 insulin injections every day.  That's a lot of needles in one day for any kid, including me.  Right now, my levels are all over the place.  I can start the day with a 500 and drop to a 42 in less than 2 hours.  A normal reading is in a range of 100-95.  It is very critical that I stay within my specific range, but my body has yet to do this. If I get above 300 I risk going into diabetic ketoacidosis.  Big words that mean I can lose my ability to breathe, go into seizures, coma and eventually death.  If I drop below 80, I have a shorter amount of time to get help.  The same thing happens when i get too low, my legs feel like noodles, I have no energy, I get to where I can't move, and I could go into seizures, coma and eventually death.  Type 1 Diabetes is a very scary auto-immune disease.  There is NO CURE!

Please help me; by any donation you can, to afford to recieve an insulin pump and a blood sugar monitor.  This will lessen the amount of finger pokes and insulin injections I have to have everyday along with alerting my parents, teachers, and those around me of when my sugar is going high or low.  I just want to go to school, play with my friends and be a kid.  But, now that I have this disease.  I spend most of my day in the nurse's office getting checked or treated for a low or a high.  My friends and classmates always ask me why I have to go to the nurse all the time.  The pump and monitor would also lessen the time I spend in the nurse's office and allow me to spend more time learning and being a kid!  Again, please help if you can.  The sooner I can be put on the insulin pump and blood sugar monitor the better.  Every second counts!

Thank you in advance!

Love, Layla Williams
