Diabetes
Toby Baxley

At a very awkward time and place in my life, Children's taught me that it wasn't so bad to have to take shots several times a day, and that I wasn't any different than any other kid in my class--that along with a lot of smiling and friendly faces, made my disease seem like it wasn't that big of a monster after all.
They taught me how to live; without candy and cake but also that I was not alone in my fight. That was my favorite part.
