Living with type 1 diabetes is no fun. It is no way to live, and the compromises I have to make in my life in order to survive each day are not small compromises.
I am, however, able to live and survive.
Not everyone in the world has that “luxury”. There are many places in the world where the basic supplies that we often take for granted are not available or affordable, and people are dying. Kids are dying.
Each and every day there are 200 kids diagnosed with type 1 diabetes worldwide. Two. Hundred. Every. Day.
World Diabetes Day is all about the amazing efforts of the International Diabetes Federation.
No child should die of diabetes. Light the candle and think about what you can do to make a difference.
