Clarksville, TN – A few weeks ago my family participated in JDRF Children’s Congress 2013 in Washington, D.C. where we met with our elected officials to ask for their support in finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes. There are some amazing developments focused on both a cure and treatment.
My 5 year old son, Garrett, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 21 months old. Earlier this year Garrett began using an insulin pump that replaces the need for multiple shots each day.
