My Story

A few years ago my niece Caitlin was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes. At the moment that is a diagnosis that means she will need to manage her blood sugar levels through constant testing and medication.

Caitlin is not alone, type 1 diabetes is more common in children than cancer, cystic fibrosis, multiple sclerosis, and muscular dystrophy. Approximately 1825 Australians are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes each year.

With the technology we have today, diabetes can be managed really well - but we don't want to just manage it we want to cure it.

New developments, such as contact lenses that test blood sugar levels, wrist bands that deliver microdoses of insulin, tablets that replace insulin injections - they will all make living with diabetes better in the near future (and more comfortable).

The real breakthrough will be when none of that monitoring or medication is needed anymore.

Everyone wants your money for something, and there are lots of great causes, but if you can spare 5 or 10 dollars now - then it might spare a child in in the near future from having to finger prick 4 times a day and administer their own insulin injections.

If we all pitch-in a little bit, it will make a lot of a difference.
