I’m Lenny the Lion, the ambassador for children’s diabetes education and the host of the Medtronic Junior Cup Diabetes.

I was diagnosed with diabetes when I was small and I am an insulin pump user. When I was diagnosed with diabetes, I didn’t know anything about it. But the more I learned about diabetes, the better I was able to live my life just like other kids. Whether you are very young or a teenager, I can help you learn about diabetes, how to live with diabetes, and how to talk to other people about your diabetes. Just because you have diabetes doesn’t mean you can’t do all the same things as every other kid. In fact, you will be much happier when you do all the fun things you are supposed to do as a kid. I don’t let diabetes hold me back.
