I would not want be lost in the process of what is diabetes mellitus type 1, or in any scientific explanation of it. This has
already been done by myriad scientists, specialized doctors and nurses.

For me, diabetes mellitus type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a whole new way of life.

Those who are ailing or have people in their close family circle who are sick, speak the same “language”.

The sweet children’s language, who daily struggle with balancing blood glucose levels. They put themselves on a daily basis, in restrictions, which for most people are unknown.

For me, they are all heroes. Young and elderly, but nonetheless heroes.

For all these heroes who are around and live among us, I want to try everyday to give my best, in order to help them, even a little.

In order to make their sweet life a little easier and more enjoyable.
