BENEFITING: Beyond Type 1
ORGANIZER: Beyond Type 1
Many of you know that I’ve had T1D since I was 12 years old. And since then, I've counted on my friends, family, doctors and pharmacists to help me get through some difficult times while dealing with diabetes. I know that my story is not unique on that front because everyone with T1D is in the same predicament. We’re all in this together and we’re all going to beat this together. I’ve made such amazing friends along the way in my cofounders Sarah Lucas, Claudine De Niro, Juliet de Baubigny, Nick Jonas, and my longtime doctor Jason Baker. These people have truly changed my life and have had such an impact on me and this disease. It's something I live with and I couldn't be more determined to live alone :) I’m very thankful for this amazing community I’m a part of. I’ve met so many others with T1D and it’s my duty to meet and mentor children (like Ella De Niro) who are going through the same things.
I know we can beat this because regularly speak with the doctors and scientists on the front lines. Please lend a helping hand and push them over the finish line.
