Diabetes and Family

November 12, 2019

At Friends for Life, people with diabetes wear green bracelets. Green threads together the people who are playing host to diabetes. Orange bracelets are given to folks who don’t have diabetes, but who are also affected by diabetes.

Our community thrives when these groups are leaning on and supporting one another.

Diabetes is something that families manage as a team, and the Children With Diabetes community knows the power of family support through and through. This week, we’ve had the opportunity to chat with Jeff and Brenda Hitchcock, and Laura Billetdeaux, about how diabetes has affected – and inspired – their families.

Read their stories, and please consider sharing your own!
