Our chosen charity for 2018 / 19 is one that is very special to our Dynamic Kids, read more to find out who they are, why they were chosen and how our community can help them this year.
Aged 12, I went to the Doctor for what we thought was a quick visit, within 20 minutes my life was taking a completely new and terrifying path. My doctor carried out a finger prick blood test and told my mum that I was being immediately admitted into hospital as I was seriously ill. The next few days were a blur of constant tests and learning to live a new life (someone's else life). I weighed just 5 stone at diagnosis and was just hours away from fighting for my life. I count myself as lucky as some children do not diagnosed until they are in DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis). My friends at Dynamix have given me the confidence to hold on to my dreams and not let the Diabetes win. Living with Diabetes means coming to terms with having a lifelong, life threatening condition and I am honoured that Dynamix has chosen JDRF as their charity of the year as they do such amazing work towards finding a cure and helping children like me live a normal life.
