From his mom, Andrea:

My son Eric was diagnosed at 23 months old in 1995. I found Children with Diabetes a few years later and it was a wonderful resource. Life continued and we found our way. Eric has done an amazing job managing his diabetes. He was the first child in Louisiana put on a pump at four years old. He continues to bravely battle type 1. I am so proud of him. His 17 year old sister was diagnosed last week on May 3, 2024. Her blood sugar was 1049. Eric was devastated but will be such an inspiration to Emma.

Thriving with T1D
since 1995
