Why.

The aim of this website is to educate and help parents and carers who are responsible for a child with type 1 diabetes, through my own personal experiences and research without baffling you with medical jargon.

Eddie and I have come a long way with our fellow companion type 1 diabetes. Ok more like a dreaded curse. Our attitudes have shaped our lives and both of us are strong and positive.I havent always been, I would be lying if I said otherwise. If you have read my book Help my child has type 1 diabetes then you would know just how isolated I felt in the early days.
