Stacey D.

Patient Leader

Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 5, I really didn’t know others around my age that had it as well. Over 10 years ago I found this online community of people around the world living a similar life. It was life changing. So many of those people became friends and introduced me to the world of advocacy. If I can help just one person by sharing my story and advocating, I consider that a success!
