Looking for fellow T1D warriors around 6 yrs old in South Florida!


My daughter was diagnosed last year and I feel she really needs to connect with other T1D kids. She is the only diabetic in her school and doesn’t know any other kids with T1. She’s been a trooper since diagnosis but she did ask the other day why she’s the only kid she knows that has T1D. She’s 6 years old turning 7 in July. We live in Miami at the moment.

If anyone would like to connect, would love to make that happen for our kids!

Hi @lizR555 and welcome to TypeOneNation. Did you reach out to JDRF in South Florida? The link is here. https://www.jdrf.org/southernflorida/. Sometimes the fundraising events are the best way to network and make friends. Good luck :four_leaf_clover:

You could see if her endo’s office could connect you with other families. Although HIPAA probably wouldn’t allow them to give you their numbers, I dint see why they could not share yours if you’re willing.
