The news is out… in a big way. Earlier this spring CNN visited our house to chat with Elle, and see how Elle and Coach live and work together on a daily basis.
We are always honored when national media is interested in our story. If you haven’t seen CNN’s piece, here it is:
When my daughter Elle was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, I assumed we were in for a long road. What I didn’t understand at the time is that diabetes is not a long road – it is a never-ending journey, one that requires constant management of insulin doses, blood sugar monitoring, physical activity and diet.
It’s hard to truly convey the challenges of Type 1 and the courage it takes for a child growing up with diabetes, but here’s a glimpse at what Elle’s has faced since her diagnosis.
Ever since Elle was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 8 in 2007, the daily struggles of diabetes have become a part of life. The challenges of living with this disease are both financial and emotional, and they impact the lives of millions of American families every year.
Below is a glimpse of what diabetes costs our families.
