My name is Lizzie, I'm 10 years old and in the 4th grade.
I like origami and drawing, and littlest pet shop. I love Hello Kitty too.
I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. My little sister Becca gets her finger poked sometimes to make sure her sugar level is ok. My mommy has some friends whose kids are sick with diabetes, and I wanted to do something to help, so my mommy and I came up with the Cranes 4 a Cure. I want to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. My sister is lucky, she doesn't have diabetes, but a lot of kids do, and it isn't fair. Anyone can get juvenile diabetes, you don't have to have a family history. I think they need to find a cure fast so the kids who have it can be needle free, I don't like needles.

So I guess you want to know what Cranes 4 a Cure is.
It is said that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish. Sometimes relatives or friends fold the cranes for someone who has an illness in hopes for recovery or a long life.

My goal is to raise $1,000.00. For every dollar I raise, I am going to make an origami crane and put the name of the person who sent me that dollar on the wing. Then I am going to string all the cranes together and give it to the juvenile diabetes foundation with all the money I raise. Then my wish will be to find a cure. Please help me help those kids with this bad disease. My mommy says she will take a picture of every crane I make and post it here for everyone to see. For more information, please email my mommy, her name is Jenny. A dollar isn't a lot, but it can make a difference. I hope to get some pictures of kids you can help soon.
Thank you.

All these cranes are for Giulia! 
My little sister has been having problems with her blood sugar.  She was sick last weekend and went really high.  Mommy has been poking her in the night to make sure she is ok and she doesn't even wake up.  I think if I were getting poked, I would.  Please help us find a cure.  Hopefully my sister is just having weird numbers and they will go back to normal, but there are a lot of kids that has to get poked every night and it's not really fair. 
My mommy took my uncle to the hospital this week.  She came home and told me about a guy that was there that was really sick.  He wasn't a kid, but he had type 1 diabetes.  It doesn't care how old you are, or who you are.  Mommy said she was talking to him because he was alone.  He was getting moved up to the ICU because of DKA.  He had blood sugar numbers over 400 and was really sick and really scared.  Please say a prayer that he is ok.
Please help us find a cure!
