Shelly shares what it was like to grow up in childhood and as a teen with type 1 diabetes.
Difficult. Challenging. When I first got it we got very involved with the JDRF(Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), and I went to a diabetic camp and every year I would go, and that kind of helped, just getting in touch with the community of families that are struggling with the same thing.
