Hello friends and family,
We are "Mom's On A Mission" to help educate the public and clinicians about the warning signs of type 1 diabetes and Diabetic Ketoacidosis. When both of our son's were diagnosed with T1D, we were unaware of the chronic autoimmune disease and the warning signs. Thankfully, our boys were diagnosed early enough that they survived their diagnosis. Sadly and shockingly, we have since learned that many other families and children are not always as fortunate. Children are dying from undiagnosed/misdiagnosed type 1 diabetes in our country and globally. Through our advocacy work, we are making strides and progress in T1D education/awareness campaigns for clinicians and the public. In May, 2016 we collaborated with the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics on a digital T1D Education Campaign. This month we have been invited to attend our first "Learning and Educational Event" for Pediatricians in New Jersey! Next month we will be making an announcement about an unprecedented T1D education campaign between two organizations in our home state of Pennsylvania, with plans for an education campaign to come to your state soon! We believe in Beyond Type 1 and their mission to EDUCATE, advocate and help to fund cure research!
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, Beyond Type 1 will bridge the gap from diagnosis to cure, empowering people to both live well today and funding a better tomorrow. For the next several weeks, Beyond Type 1 is participating in Revlon's Love Is On $1,000,000 challenge! If they win, just imagine how many diferent types of education campaigns can sweep our nation, so that everyone will be made aware of type 1 diabetes! It's truly a win/win.

FOR TODAY ONLY 9/19/16 DONATE $40 AND RECEIVE A FREE T-SHIRT! PLEASE INDICATE SHIRT SIZE IN YOUR DONATION COMMENT BOX UPON MAKING YOUR DONATION!.
This is life-saving stuff and we are beyond passionate about it! Thank you for helping us ensure that every child receives an early diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and is able to go home and live well!
Until a cure,
Michelle Berman & Deborah Healy
