Help me find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes!


Hope: Diabetes Supplies Art by Manny Hernandez

I was diagnosed at 17 with Juvenile Diabetes (now commonly known as Type 1 Diabetes because onset isn’t strictly confined to childhood) and this year marks my 11th year living with the condition. Last week Nick and I decided to take part in the Bridge to Brisbane fun run as part of the #BTUB group, and we also decided to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in the lead up to the event.

Despite many T1D people being promised a cure a decade ago, it’s still no where near materialised. Type 1 also seems to get lost in all the press releases and scare mongering about diabetes, when they’re actually referring to Type 2! As a result, a lot of misconceptions abound about these two groups of sufferers and I have a horrible feeling that funds are being channeled away from research for a T1 cure as well.

If you’d like to donate to my fundraising effort for JDRF, I really, really, really appreciate it. In very real ways. It’s not just that I have to stab myself x times a day: it’s feeling like I’m a freak, having to discretely inject when I’m out, explaining why I have sharps in my bag when I fly (with a medical certificate!), and always being prepared for the possibility that my blood sugar might go low at the most inopportune of times (I’ve lost jobs in the past because I’ve had a hypo during phone calls or interviews)!

You can donate here via my Everyday Hero page and help the JDRF find a cure. I’m aiming for AUD$1000 – eep! Thank you SO SO much for supporting a cause that I have such a personal investment in :)

  1. I am also a Type 1 Diabetic and have been for about 10 years. I am slowly switching over to a raw, vegan diet ( i tried to do it all at once and it was not fun, so slowly it is), but while I was completely raw vegan I did not need insulin. I also exercised to keep my sugar in control. Just wanted to put this out there for you. I think you blog is great! Here is the link to the book I am reading about healing Diabetes and a documentary too:

  10. your diabetes art is so disturbingly beautiful. It looks so much more meaningful and deeper to us compared to any person without diabetes. My little brother was diagnosed when he was 3 years old and now we have bee living with diabetes for 8 years. I have also started to make diabetes art, but not like you. I take pictures of insulin and needles and test strips lying around the house for my photography class.
