BENEFITING: Beyond Type 1
ORGANIZER: Beyond Type 1
Colby is funny, kind and always happy. He is also incredibly brave. He has been living with Type 1 diabetes since he was 4 years old. It has not been easy. Each day I struggle to keep his blood sugar on target. I worry endlessly about extreme lows and highs - both damaging, yet both so difficult to avoid in spite of all of the technology and resources. Colby's wish is to not have this disease anymore; no more worrying about what he eats or what he must avoid, no more painful finger sticks or needles, and no more feeling so sick he can't play with friends. Please help us make Colby's wish a reality by supporting our page. Any amount is appreciated!
Beyond Type 1 is a new brand of philanthropy leveraging the power of social media and technology, changing what it means to live with a chronic disease. By educating the global community about this autoimmune disease, as well as providing resources and support for those living with Type 1, we will bridge the gap from diagnosis to cure, empowering people to both live well today and funding a better tomorrow. We are here to disrupt diabetes.
