At DHF, we understand the ups and downs of living with type 1 diabetes – pun intended! We admire the youth we work with who bravely confront T1D, refusing to let T1D stand in the way of them achieving their dreams. Our blog is a platform for these inspiring individuals to share their stories of triumph through the day to day challenges of navigating life with Type 1 diabetes. We are excited to feature their stories, not only to inspire and inform but also to remind everyone in the diabetes community that they are not alone. Let’s celebrate resilience, exchange stories, and form a supportive community that celebrates youth who truly are greater than T1D!
