31 Days: Childhood Diabetes

I was introduced to Childhood Diabetes as a 13 year old. I became friends with a girl who had Type 1. There was a lot that I learned from her. I had the opportunity to participate in the summer camp as well. JDRF is a great organization. Here is some information about Type 1 Diabetes.
  • As many as three million Americans may have type 1 diabetes. 1
  • Each year, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults - approximately 80 people per day - are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the U.S.2
