#WorldDiabetesDay

November 14 is #WorldDiabetesDay – a day that honors Sir Frederick Banting who discovered insulin in 1922 along with Charles Best. As part of our #KnowSurviveThrive campaign, we’ve teamed up with EASE T1D to raise awareness and bring educational resources to the forefront and help people get the proper care and treatment for diabetes.

My diabetes story started just after my wife, Whitney, and I had our second child. It was the end of December 2016, we now had 2 beautiful boys, Brody and Daxson, and we were now a family of four. In this highest point of my young family’s life, little did we know, I was starting to experience complications of a diabetic.

Our family might look a little different than others. We might have our eyes on a phone more than others to do a blood sugar check, we might have to stop and have our son eat an extra snack, but we are just like any other family. We are stronger from Ian’s diagnosis. We have fought and will continue to fight and we won’t back down. #KNOWSURVIVETHRIVE
