For seasoned Friends for Lifers, the green and orange bracelets show us that we’re not alone. Green bracelets are for people living with diabetes, and orange bracelets are worn by people without diabetes who support a friend or family member with diabetes.
These groups support one another, and the difference they make is felt in every session, every discussion, and every connection.
Sierra Abel and Sarah Lanning, siblings of PWD, work with their fellow siblings of people with diabetes to encourage frank and honest discussions about what it’s like to be an “orange bracelet” amongst the “green bracelets” at Friends for Life. Check out the video below for a look at what being on Team Orange means to them.
