8 year old son with Type 1 in Virginia wants to find penpal close to his age with Type 1

My son was diagnosed with Type 1 in April.  He is the only one in his school with diabetes.  I would like for him to find a penpal that also has Type 1 so that he knows he is not the only kid with this diagnosis.


We’re in Richmond - I have a 9yo daughter who would penpal! We had good luck with Beyond Type1’s snail mail program too, if you’re interested…

WHOops. I’m new here. Is this post from 2012? Hope you found someone :joy:

I have a almost 9 year old daughter as well!!! Would love to pen pal!!!
