My Brave Girl

My daughter has tried not to let this stand in her way of doing exactly what her friends do. Just recently she has been diagnosed as Coeliac, she hasn't let it faze her at all and has just accepted it with no fuss. I am so very proud of her and love her very much. ~ Rachael

Our family set up team jolly olly & have raised thousands of pounds believing one day a cure will be found, we are always grateful to Jude & her team for their continued support thank you JDRF 💙💙💙 ~ Trudy

How my loving partners help through my T1D

Both of my partners have one or more family member that suffer with T1D and with me struggling with depression, they do anything they can to help me through it. I have had T1D for 13 years and these two are my biggest inspirations. I am currently helping one of my partners sister with her T1D. And they are very supportive to my sexuality too. ~ Kira-Naryce

You can have a normal life

I was diagnosed at 6. We were moving from Netherlands to Belgium. For me leaving was harder than the diagnosis. The first thing my doctor said is that I would have a normal life. Although there is not so much normal in doing injections and checking sugar I have done everything I wanted. I lived and worked in 4 countries. I did all sports I wanted to. I feel lucky I can live with it, have the drugs I need without problems and work on my next dream. ~ Marie

I love writing and singing but I also have diabetes

I have type 1 Diabetes but I don't let that stop me from doing what I love. Even though I have an illness, my loved ones support me. ~ Lily

Emma Coyle

She’s amazing. She has embraced all the bad thing that T1 brings because she knows she’s better than T1 and she won’t let it beat her. Again “She’s Amazing” X ~ Ruth
