Hellen shares her day with her type 1 son Finn. She also has Jordan, a DAD. Sounds like it was an interesting day yesterday. You can follow them here: Helping Finnlee

This is a day in the life of Type 1 diabetes for Finnlee. The day we recorded was a nice and easy day.  Not all days are this EASY.  This is what it takes to keep him in range, Safe, healthy, and alive. We use 4 tools…our brains, our blood sugar meter, a continuous glucose monitor, and a diabetic alert dog.

Many of us are coming together today sharing what our days look like because it has been brought up that we should take a day off of raising awareness…as you see T1 never takes a break even on a good day. Until there is a cure you will hear me raising awareness for my son, my children at risk, the families of other t1’s that have become our T1 family…and for your children. Because no more children should have to live this life.
