Tim Brand

Patient Leader

I am the creator of the Bleedingfinger Blog, and co-founder of dads battling diabetes. I raise two girls who have type 1 diabetes, diagnosed at ages three in 2009 and 2011. My writings on the subject of parenting children with type 1 diabetes have appeared in Diabetes Daily, Healthline, EverydayHealth, MyGlu and others. My blog was included in a NIH sponsored study about parenting children with diabetes. I was a member of the Diabetes Advocates and was a two time scholarship recipient for Master Lab, and 2013 ADA conference. My wife and I have two other children without diabetes and advocate for a cure so my they won't experience the life their two sisters do.
