SA WristbandsWe have another great wristband appearance courtesy of Tashia efforts to spread the word far and wide! This one is in San Antonio, Texas. At least one of those hands is dealing with Type 1 Diabetes in their own life. We wish you good health!

That’s A Wrap!

Thank you all for the love and support! I can’t express my gratitude enough.

Type 1 Diabetes touches lives around the world. You may not know someone struggling with the disease, but you know someone who knows someone. I promise you.

Nobody should have to lose sleep wondering if the last dinner they gave their children or adult loved ones will wreak havoc on their blood sugar. Nobody should have to worry that the next sugar drop will be the last seizure before their life end’s too soon.

We can make a difference. We can fight back. It takes funding and education. Join us!
