EBS is so excited to be involved with JDRF, a leading organization funding Type 1 Diabetes Research. Please read on and consider helping us reach our fundraising goal as EBS' own team member, Nick Mafale shares his story about growing up with Type 1 Diabetes:

Ten years ago, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) at the age of 16. I had no idea what diabetes was, but then again what 16-year-old does?

Thank goodness my parents recognized something was off and got me to a hospital right away. At admission, my blood sugar was very close to 1000. To put that in perspective, people without diabetes have a standard blood sugar level of 80 to 120 every single day.

As my body was flushed with fluids for days, I was educated on what T1D is and how to safely manage it. Unfortunately, this is a disease that has no cure and will never go away. There is also no known reason why people get it, but it is believed to be an "autoimmune disorder". My pancreas decided it didn?t want to work for me anymore.

At only 16 years old, I wasn't about to let Diabetes bring me down.

I can proudly say that I am now 26 years old and have been doing the best I can to manage this disease and keep my body healthy. My A1C levels are in the 7's and I am very regimented about counting carbs and always using insulin. I played collegiate golf for four years and not once did I ever feel that Diabetes was going to impact my life in a negative way. Don't give up your goals and dreams because of a small speedbump.

JDRF is such a great cause and I think kids like me who are growing up with this disease need a better solution and easier way to manage and maintain a healthy life style.

Any help and/or donations are greatly appreciated. #JDRF #T1D
