Head Counselor: Hannah Buckley
Hannah has been a Type 1 Diabetic since January of 2006. She began her journey with No Limits in 2007 where she spent 4 years as a camper and 7 years as a counselor. This summer will mark her 11th year with No Limits. Hannah is a current fourth grade teacher in Louisville, Kentucky and has recently returned from teaching a year abroad in American Samoa. She loves building relationships through diabetes camp and sharing her testimony with others. When asked what her favorite part about diabetes camp is, she responded, "Meeting people who make you feel normal and not ashamed to be who you truly are. Diabetes does not define you. It may be a part of you, but it is not your life."

I was diagnosed in 1997 and I started going to camp when I was 7 (2002). I have a lot of favorite things about camp... like making new friends, trying and doing new things, and I have always loved camp and the camp fire. Last year (2017) was my first summer being a counselor.
I've been a Type One Diabetic since 2010 and started camp shortly after my diagnosis. My first summer at camp as a camper was 2010 and I've been a counselor since 2016. My favorite things about camp are the people and the family-like support.
Hi, I'm Kim! I was diagnosed with diabetes in the year 2000. I have been involved with diabetes camping for over 15 years. This summer will be my 6th year working with NLD. I have attended a few different camps, but I have found home at No Limits. Going to camp when I was young showed me that I am not alone in my journey with type 1 diabetes. Camp opened up so many possibilities to me that I once believed was lost simply because I was diagnosed with diabetes. In addition, I gained a fantastic camp family that continuously supports me and is always there when I need to vent about diabetes. The best part? They can completely relate to me because they are on their own journey with diabetes. The impact of camp and the people I have met at camp is irreplaceable in my journey with diabetes.
I'm a firefighter for the city of Hammond. I've been camping for 15 years. I've had diabetes for 16 years. This year will be my 6th year as a counselor. I think my favorite part about Camp is how close we all become as a diabetic family. Some of my best friends are people I met my first year here at No Limits. Camp is always my favorite part of the summer and I wouldn't let anything get in the way of coming!
I was diagnosed in 2002 and started going to camp in 2004. I started being a counselor in 2017. I am a recent college graduate from the University of Louisville with my bachelor’s degree in Biology and Psychology. Right now I am preparing for a post-bac nursing program that I will start May 2018 at Bellarmine University in Louisville, KY. My favorite thing about camp is the support that I feel among staff and campers in dealing with my diabetes. Camp is a great way to surround myself with others like me who truly understand the struggles we go through on a daily basis. Also I am a big fan of the ziplining!
Danny began to learn about life with diabetes in 1991 when he met Sheri. They were married in 1992 and in 1994 had their son, Adam. When Adam was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2010, Danny was the first to recognize his symptoms. Danny has witnessed first hand the positive difference camp makes in the life of a teen diabetic! Danny attended camp with Sheri and Adam for the first time in 2016 as a counselor. He will be attending this year to help with the coordination of activities.
