Hello and thank you for stopping by my team page. My name is Max and I have had T1D for 24 years, and for the longest time I felt like I was the only child in the world that had T1D. My confidence was low, I had a little bit of control of my diabetes but not the best. Then in the summer of 2008, I was blessed to be able to spend a summer at Camp Sweeney, the rest is history. Every summer since then was spent at Camp, and I have a lot of people to thank for shaping me, but Camp Sweeney helped with that the most. Camp Sweeney taught me not only how to take better control of my diabetes, but it helped me gain confidence and it taught me that I am not alone in this battle against T1D and that there are others like me that deal with many of the same daily struggles that I do. If it wasn’t for Camp Sweeney I would not be the person I am today.
Most of my family and my oldest friends tell me how much Camp has helped me improve, and how it changed me for the better, and I want to try and help send another child to Camp Sweeney to experience the same things I experienced for 8 summers of my childhood. For that child to learn that they are not alone in the fight, that there are others like them that share in their struggles, so please consider donating or joining my team.
Thank you and PFC,
