Sydney’s Fight For A Type 1 Cure

It was when Sydney was in fifth grade, that all the signs and symptoms were there. Constant thirst, hunger, and bathroom breaks, it all pointed to one thing, type 1 diabetes. However, not quite convinced that she had type 1 diabetes, since it didn’t run in their family, Sydney’s mom scheduled an appointment to rule it out.

Watch as Sydney and her mother speak about her diagnosis, how she manages her diabetes today, and the importance of a cure. Sydney pricks herself four to five times a day, counts her carbs, and uses insulin to manage her blood sugars. But insulin is not a cure. Join Sydney and her family to find a cure to type 1 diabetes!
