“I will never forget the help I received from my community and JDRF when I was diagnosed with T1D in 2011 at the age of eight. Now I am not only an avid fundraiser, but also a JDRF youth ambassador."
"I know first-hand the challenges of dealing with T1D in the workplace. I occasionally have situations where my blood sugar is low at work, which can happen at any time"
"When I was first diagnosed - just before starting second grade - I was at the theatre with my Mom and had to go to the bathroom many times."
"I was diagnosed with T1D when I was 19 years old. This was at the end of my first year of university. While most people are diagnosed as children, I was already an adult."
