Children with diabetes are absolute warriors. As someone who was diagnosed as an adult, my mind can't fathom being diagnosed at such a young age that diabetes is all that you know. There's a lot to learn not only for the child but for their parents or caregivers as well.
That's where Raquel comes in. She started her company Type One Together to support kids with type one and their families. With her coaching services or the adorable diabuddies, Raquel provides hope to kids and parents alike that diagnosed doesn't mean defeated.
