I’m Ashika Parsad and I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in October of 1994. Diabetes has lead me to the most amazing people and the most beautiful places. I’m not an athlete, I don’t have a perplexing story of overcoming obstacles and attempting impossible goals. I’m your average type 1 with a dream of creating awareness and helping fund research for diabetes prevention, management, and a cure.
I have joined forces with a group of 20 type 1s from across the world to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro this June. Please support us by making a donation. Every dollar counts!
