ORGANIZER: Beyond Type 1
Dear friends, family & our friends in the DOC,
We are honored to be part of the 'Mom's On A Mission' team to help educate the public and clinicians about the warning signs of Type 1 Diabetes. 36% of those diagnosed in the US are in Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) at onset. This is a potentially life threatening condition if not caught in time, and sadly too many children and adults are still dying as a result of a delayed diagnosis.
Both of us, are also involved in parent support groups in our area. From helping others who have children recently diagnosed, to lunch/dinner get togethers with other parents, and finally a parent founded advocacy group to help with school issues.
Carolyn & Amy are both passionate about advocacy, education and awareness. Having support from the Type 1 community is so important, and we want new families to know - you are not alone.
**We are hosting a brunch, silent auction & raffle fundraiser on October 26th. All donations received will go via our team page. If you would like to donate any items for the silent auction or raffle, please let us know. Thank you**
