Moore County residents Betsy Saye, Kirsten Foyles and Dottie Black lend a heartfelt and articulate voice to the discovery, trials, tributations and small triumphs of what it is like to be the mother/parent/friend to their Type 1 diabetic children. Their perspective and advice can serve as a valuable aid to families who have or are experiencing the presence of Type 1 diabetes with their own children. From the symptom discovery to the management of this, as yet, incurable disease, Betsy, Kirsten and Dottie offer great information with many positive personal stories of their children’s special challenges and their siblings support. They take us into the everyday lives of Lauren, age 9, Anna Grace, age 11, and Stephen, age 13.
JDRF was founded by parents of Type 1 children and is the only global organization with a strategic plan to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until it is no longer a threat to anyone. http://jdrf.org/.
