How to connect with us.
“I feel the person that I’m today, I don’t know what I would be like if I hadn’t grown up with type 1 diabetes”. Amber Clour
“I think what people would learn from us and our guests is to have a better appreciation of: Hey! Yes, this is a chronic disease, but it is manageable. It’s a kind of roller coaster”. - Dave Kliff
“We are patients with diabetes, and we want you to understand what our life is like because the more you understand, the better you can help us. That’s all that matters”. - Dave Kliff
