I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 12. The excellent care I received from Texas Children’s Hospital, and the experience of my family throughout my initial diagnosis, empowered me and my family to begin living safely with Type 1 diabetes. Now, at age 22, I safely manage my disease. The RaeLynn Diabetes Fund was created to offer support, empowerment, and a community, for all of those facing diabetes with me. Our mission is to raise funds to support those whose lives are impacted by Type 1, Type 2, and juvenile diabetes.
