Eight-year-old Vanessa is a creative, fun-loving, adventurous girl who wants to be a landscaper when she grows up. If you didn’t know it, you could never tell that this active kid has been living with type 1 diabetes.
Her parents are very proud of her since she’s taken diabetes management under her own hands, but they can’t help but worry about the risks that come with diabetes. They thank the insulin pump for making a big difference in her life and look forward to her learning more about it as she gets older. To parents who have children that have been newly diagnosed, Vanessa’s parents reassure them that it only gets easier as you keep at it!
