I can honestly say that when I accepted the position as a Type I Diabetic Nurse at my local school district 5 years ago, I never knew how working with children with T1D would impact my life. The students we work with have taught us lessons in courage, strength and perseverance and have done it with dignity and seldom with complaints. Now as we meet new families whose lives have been affected, we will have an important resource to assist them in getting in contact with other families in our community. This site and organization is a labor of love and one of self sacrifice. Thank you to all of the dedicated staff who have made this website a reality. Wishing you much luck and continued success in the coming years!

 Caren, nurse

Carb DM provides exactly the forum that was missing for us—a structured forum for education and connection centered around the well-being of the Type I Diabetic family. I can say with absolute certainty that I learn more from parents of children with diabetes than from all the research and reading I do. And my daughter blossomed when she learned that she wasn’t alone in managing this disease. Introducing her to other Type I diabetics has been a gift to all of us. I have attended several of the networking meetings and each one has brought me new perspective on several of the issues I juggle on a daily basis, as well as new friendships and numbers to call when our supply shipment doesn’t arrive, or we need a weekend babysitter. Lectures and discussions centered on school, summer camps, family involvement, new technologies, and ceding control of daily health management to my child have enriched my approach and alleviated some of my battle fatigue. This is a life-long disease, and I feel renewed to meet tomorrow’s challenges, whatever they may be.
