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

From day one of our diagnosis Tamar was a saving angel, with prompt answers to our questions and proactive support on questions we should have asked. She guided us through the shock of discovery, the fear of treatment and installed in us a confidence in “seizing diabetes.”

Like a compass Tamar guides families from confused patients into a loving network of friends that together improve the treatment for our kids and support those who care and surround them.

The Carb DM model should be duplicated across the global community!
