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!
