Addison has been living with Type 1 Diabetes for over 5 years as she was diagnosed at the age of 2.5 years old. Life hasn’t been easy but she goes with it and takes on those bumps in the road with stride. When she was little, she would ask Ryan and I if we knew anyone her age that also had diabetes. We met a few people and found out about the Friends For Life Children with Diabetes Conference where thousands of people come together and all those living with Type 1 Diabetes “fit in”. Attending the conference for the first time gave Addison a sense of normalacy. We made it our goal to attend this amazing conference every year for her. We met Janice & Macey at our first conference where Addison saw Ariel in line and thought it was so cool that Aria’s had diabetes just like her. Little did she know at the time that Arial was just Macey dressed up . Soon thereafter we began following Macey’s Believers Inc and although we live in Wisconsin and can not attend the awesome events Macey’s Believers Inc organizes, we support this non profit organization as they have helped give scholarships to many families who want to attend the Friends For Life Children With Diabetes Conference. We are grateful for this organization and all that they have done us and others living with Type 1 Diabetes.
