Michael's Story

I’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.

Over the past 20 years I have watched my brother make conscious decision after conscious decision just to maintain a process within his body that is automatic to you and I. I've seen first-hand the daily struggles he faces but his resolve is inspirational. Below is a link to a short summary of his experience. I encourage you to have a read, you may learn something.

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

Well done Michael. As you say in your essay this affliction has a long history and each generation has a role to play in beating it. Put another way picking up the arrow shot by the previous generation where it has fallen and shooting it forward.
