Meet Christopher, diagnosed with Type I Diabetes in July 2007

Christopher was 11 years old when he was diagnosed with Type I diabetes during the transition of a move his family was making to Connecticut. Less than one of every ten people with diabetes have Type I insulin dependant diabetes.

His family became familiar with American Diabetes Association (ADA) and was introduced to a support group. ADA also provided them with a place to get their questions and concerns answered and helped his mother to find answers from specialized doctors seeking to uncover the uniqueness of how Christopher's body handled the disease.

American Diabetes Association has also provided an avenue for Christopher to speak in public forums, allowing him to build his own self-confidence and educate others.

Christopher feels that he has a chance to make a difference in the lives of others who are living with this disease and, with the support of ADA, all the information and help is right at his fingertips. The quality of their lives has improved with the help of ADA and his family is eternally grateful.
