Molly’s Life with Type 1 Diabetes
Every day, more than 6,000 children and young adults in Georgia receive a diabetes diagnosis, just like Molly did when she was 2 years-old. She doesn’t really remember a life without Type 1 diabetes, and neither does her family. But they do know that without it, things would be a whole lot easier. But Molly doesn’t let her diabetes stop her from being a regular kid.
Years after her diagnosis, Molly and her family discuss what it was like to receive a diabetes diagnosis and how they learned to cope with the physical and emotional demands of the condition. They talk about how diabetes has affected their lives, the way they’ve had to adjust, and the misconceptions, struggles, and fears they’ve encountered along the way.
Take a look at Molly’s take on diabetes and what she hopes to see in the future!
