One of these boys has Type 1 Diabetes. Can you tell who it is? I thought not! 

One of these boys is the boy and the egg: my amazing, busy son who has Type 1 diabetes. The other two are pretty fantastic too, in their own perfectly imperfect ways!

I imagine in homes all over the world, people with Type 1 diabetes live normal, perfectly imperfect lives every day just like everyone else and manage their diabetes as best they can. I looked back this week at what my three sons achieved: mainly normal boy stuff with quite a lot of sport, not too much study and the usual measure of shenanigans!

Looking at how people live full lives with Type 1 diabetes feels me with hope and joy. I love beyond type 1 for the way in which it does this.
