Orlando's Story

On December 10th, 2021, just a few days before his 12th birthday, our little Orlando was rushed to emergency with a diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes. The last 8 months for us have been interesting, and for Orlando, it is life changing. Despite his calm and accepting way of living with this condition, it still presents daily challenges and if not managed correctly has consequences. As a family unit, we all work together as a team to ensure the burden is not too much to bare for him. 

So much research is being done to try and solve the mysteries of why the immune system decides to do what it does to create this condition, to prevent it from happening to others, and perhaps even reverse it. But like all things, the research and support systems need money to do the work. 

I'm walking 125KM in the One Walk Step Challenge to support the more than 125,000 people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in Australia!

Why? To raise funds that will help explore even more treatment options for T1D and help us get closer to a world without the lifelong autoimmune condition.
