Young Girl Shares Diabetes Experience

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - A seven-year-old girl with type one diabetes returned from Washington D.C, where she got to she got to meet with members of congress, all while trying to find a cure for diabetes.

Finley Cetraro from Bozeman was diagnosed with type one diabetes when she was two years old.

She was one out of 150 people across the country chosen to represent Montana at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, an organization working to find a cure for type one diabetes.

Finley's father said they will know by the end of this month if a $150 million grant toward a special diabetes program was approved.

He adds, it was a great experience for Finley because she got to interact with others that have the same disease.

"I think it was real exciting for Finley to see other kids, peers, adults with type one diabetes," said Andrew Cetraro, Finley's father. "She really warmed up to a group of gals that were in college that were helping us out that were all type one diabetics but they were volunteering for the same cause."

"We were trying to find a cure," said Finley Cetraro.

Finley also had the chance to meet Senator Max Baucus, Senator Jon Tester and Congressman Steve Daines.
