Welcome to Maren's Mob!!!! Make sure you check out the link to our video. So much has happened this year, as all our lives change, kids grow, milestones are reached --- you can't imagine how diabetes interrupts it all. Type 1 diabetes impacts each and everything Maren does. We are lucky that she takes the time and puts forth the effort to keep herself healthy, however, Type 1 complicates much of what she does. Taking tests, playing sports, even hanging out with friends. Planning and preparing - that is what we have taught her....... but sometimes even with the best intentions, diabetes doesn't play nice and blood sugar numbers are beyond our control.
This past year she has battled the flu, complicating her diabetes, and come back. She has also battled discrimination on the athletic field where her insulin pump was deemed a safety issue to all player. Type 1 was difficult enough to deal with - she spends much of her time educating people about Type 1 diabetes --- we are finding it is one of the most misunderstood diseases. She has also tried a CGM - a continuous glucose monitor. This is a sensor she wears that helps read her glucose readings over to her pump. A great way for her to see trends and anticipate low and high blood sugars. This technology is a result of research -- you see how donated dollars to the JDRF is changing lives?!?!?
I am asking for your support. Please donate to our walk team. By doing so, you can help make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes, including Maren.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
