My Story

Iโ€™m doing the JDRF One Walk Step Challenge to defeat T1D! That means I'll be walking 100KM in October to acknowledge 100 years since the ground-breaking discovery of insulin.

Why? To drive progress towardย improving lives and defeating T1D, andย change the lives of more than 125,000 Australians who battle this disease every day in the process.

Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any time, and 8 Australians will be diagnosed today. Diagnosis means a 24/7 fight with no break and facing an extra 180 decisions a day to remain safe and healthy.

DONATE NOW to help the #JDRFBlueArmy and help create a world without T1D. Thank you.

It was scary when you were little. I am sorry that it is still so difficult. I am so pleased you are so pragmatic about how you deal with this. We know so little about disabilities, T1D included. Congratulations


Neil & Kathy Adams

Thanks for sharing your story - it is so enlightening to hear your perspective. Hats off to you and your parents (and other family members, no doubt).
