When Max Ponting was just eight years old he was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes. With careful dieting and the help of an insulin pump, Max has been fortunate to maintain healthy blood sugar levels within the normal range over the past three years. Max, now a healthy sixth grader at Campbell County Middle School, is up for a fight against the dreaded disease and plans to join his 50+ teammates this Saturday in the “Newport Walk to Cure Diabetes”.
To help support Max and other students in our district like him who suffer from diabetes, please feel free to contact www.jdrf.org
and search Team “Mad Max”. All proceeds will go toward funding diabetes research. Click here
