Imagine having not one, not two, but three beautiful children all diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The shock of the diagnoses threw the Dent family into a spin, desperate for resources, information and support. You can help us support families like the Dents by contributing to our programs:
• Running events for children living with diabetes such as DiaBuddies day;
• Providing access to critical diabetes information and resources; and
• Assisting with lobbying efforts such as making Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) equipment available for all.
Your generosity can make a big difference to the Dents and others like them.
The girls are getting to know there are quite a few other kids like them, and it's a big part of them accepting what they're going through.
