I have type 1 diabetes and there are no accessories for my American Girl doll. I'm 11 and I just got diagnosed with diabetes a little over 3 months ago. I feel so different now and my whole life has been turned around. I want to have diabetic accessories for my American Girl doll so she is just like me. I just want everyone to feel good about themselves no matter if they have something "wrong with them". Whether they have a disability, blindness, deaf, diabetes, and so much more! It's important to feel good about yourself! No matter who you are! Be yourself and show YOUR inner star. Express yourself and be yourself. This is what my petition stands for! I know that if they made american girl doll diabetic accessories it would make thousands a diabetic kids like me happy. Please sign my petition and make thousands of millions happy.
Jean McKenzie, Executive Vice President of American Girl
Please make an insulin pump and diabetic accessories for American Girl dolls. It would mean a lot to thousands of girls with diabetes.
We have been moved by your comments so much that we are putting together a follow up video for our American Girl petition featuring YOU. Just submit 2 pictures of you or someone you know (with permission) holding a sign. The first sign will be of when you or the person were diagnosed with diabetes or how diabetes affects you/their life. The second sign will be a reason you think American Girl should make diabetic accessories for their dolls. We are looking for a wide variety of people and reasons. The video will be set to the song "It's Possible" by MJ2(one of their members is a type 1 diabetic) who has graciously given us permission to use it. Try to take the pictures in a sideways format like the pictures shown here. Send the pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org You can check out my signs and reason on my facebook page at www.diabeticamericangirl.com
An Antigo girl who was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes is now finding a unique way to spread the word about her disease. She's looking to get help from American Girl to show young girls with diabetes they're not alone.
In August of last year we started noticing a change in our 11 year old daughter. She was very cranky and others commented on how much water she was drinking. She was always complaining that she didn't feel well often and began snapping at her family.
We are very excited! Our story made it into the national and even international news. It aired in places like Portland, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Maine, Texas, and Oklahoma. It was also featuring on many websites and blogs throughout the nation and overseas. Thank you all so much sharing. I know we will get there!
Great news! I just got a message from channel 12. NBC called them and asked them to upload our interview into their network server so that any NBC station can broadcast it if they want to. You can check out our interview at the following link.
