    I live for my family. I am a mom. My husband and I always wanted a family, and we were not willing to let the fact that we live with diabetes stand in the way of that.

    Social Worker

    As a social worker of 14 years, my passion is for helping others. I work in the transplant field, and I’ll admit that it isn’t always a walk in the park. It’s very rewarding, but emotions run high, the pace is quick and stress is certainly a job...

    Musician

    Talk about surprises! I recently learned that I've been placed on the ballot for the upcoming Grammy Awards in the category of "Best Improvised Jazz Solo." But there was a time when just playing the flute these days would've been an even bigger...

    Registered Nurse

    My name is Jewels Doskicz, I'm a 42 year old Registered Nurse, and it's no great mystery where my passion comes from as an advocate for diabetes research and information sharing: I've been living with type 1 diabetes since 1984.
