Perhaps more than anyone else, children living with type 1
diabetes need good friendships to deal with the stress they face
Since last October, Jack has been living with type 1 diabetes.
Every day he has to endure blood glucose testing and insulin
injections to keep him alive.
His mum Sarah said,
"Jack's blood sugar levels were so high the doctors were
surprised he was not unconscious and his organs hadn't started
"He was petrified. I felt so helpless and I couldn't stop
Fortunately, Jack and Sarah now know that
they are not alone, because they attended a DiaBuddies Day. Each
day is crammed with fun and opportunities to connect with other
children and families. Health professionals like diabetes educators
and dietitians are also on hand.
We can only continue to hold DiaBuddies Days with kind donations from people like you.
"It was amazing that people donated and helped my little boy
feel wonderful for the day," Sarah says.
Please donate now.
