"Finding CWD and attending that first FFL, we realized this is where our T1 journey begins. It is where we gain knowledge that is golden and given irreplaceable tools to help better manage our lives now that we are living it with type 1. It is where we learn how to better educate those around us in our everyday lives. It’s therapy for ourselves as parents trying to navigate through the emotions."
