Back to Kid' Voices Rachel

Hi. My name is Rachel.

I'm 10 years old. I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2003 when I was 6 years old. Both of my brothers have diabetes. There are four kids in my family and three have diabetes. One does not. My brothers and my sisters names are Ben, who is 15, Cassius, who is 18, and Becky, who is 15.

I have a pump. It's blue i really like it. It's better than having to take shots every time I eat. My brother Cassius and I use insulin pumps. My brother Ben does not like the pump. I want to get the new pump.

My hobbies are camping and racing -- racing because my dad and brother race at Cedar Lake Speedway.
