It was my childhood dream to be a race car driver. My dad, who is also a race car driver, introduced me to the sport as a kid, letting me tag along in karts and stock cars and other vehicles. I was hooked. At 14, I won my first Legends Division...

Appreciating the Dexcom.
After BSparl was born, I was overwhelmed with adjusting to life as a mom, and diabetes took a backseat to just about everything. I was healing from my c-section, attempting to snap up all the snappy things on...
We truly believe that anything is possible. Our daughter Avery (Hallie) was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes five years ago, when she was three. From the very beginning, we have made it a point to never let her diagnosis hold her back. She can do...
Imagine having two major, life-changing events virtually back-to-back. Now imagine that you're not yet 10 years of age. That's exactly what happened during 2013 to a remarkable young man named Dave!
The first event came in March when, out...
Just one week after my sixteenth birthday, I was admitted to the Emergency Room with pain in my upper left abdomen. After x-rays and blood work, the doctor told me “Fatema, you have a tumor on your pancreas that needs to be removed immediately...
Most things pale in comparison to my daughter Emma’s diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes at age five. It’s funny how a date has an uncanny way of etching itself into ones mind forever; February 9, 2007 and January 1, 1984 happen to be two of them....
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.
I’m Mom to a wonderful, funny, little boy. He’s five years old. Our...

I firmly believe in the power of two small but life-changing words: "me, too".
Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of six, I’ve had over a quarter century to learn just how much impact peer support can have on my health. Living with...

I had heard about the Dexcom for years.
Despite the positive things I had read across the blogosphere, I never really thought much about switching over. I figured how different could the Dexcom really be than the CGM our son Charlie was...
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...
When you are first told, "You have type 1 diabetes," it can be a shattering experience.
Eventually, though, through education and support, you can emerge much stronger than you might've been otherwise, as I believe happened with me....
I was diagnosed Type 1 thirty seven years ago – back in what some call the “diabetes dark ages.” I was only a child, with little understanding of what my disease was, let alone what it meant to “successfully manage” it. Things were different back...
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...
Being an “Ironman” comes with a few assumptions. People assume I live a healthy, active lifestyle. They figure I’m the kind of person who can finish a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and a 26.2-mile run and live to tell the tale. They’re right, I am...
