Operation Ouch

We were so lucky to score a meet and greet with Dr Xand and Dr Chris, from Operation ouch, after their show yesterday. They were so interested in our Type 1 Diabetes story! They checked out Isaac's pump and asked him a few different questions regarding his Type 1 and diagnosis. Isaac handed them a signed book, they went through and commented on almost every page.

What fabulous people they are and such a fabulous show for kids (and adults!). Such a highlight!!

 

Justin Morris

We met with Justin Morris, a former professional cyclist with Team Novo Nordisk - The worlds' first professional all diabetes cycling team.  Isaac signed the book for him.

Sir Ian Botham

Isaac and I had the privilege of meeting Sir Ian Botham a couple of months ago at a filming of the JDRF One Walk ad. I was also privileged to meet him, his wife and daughter (who is Type 1 herself), again today at Melbourne’s JDRF One Walk. I have it on good authority (and feel very humbled) that Ian Botham’s grandkids read Peeking into Type 1 Diabetes quite often.

I love spreading the word and helping families/friends of Type 1 to understand this horrid illness.

"Many thanks for my book and for your wonderful example of the most caring parenting. Have read your book with my 7 year old".

Isaac and I were invited to the announcement of the CGM subsidy for under 21's with Type 1 Diabetes.  Isaac passed on his book as a 'Thank You', to Greg Hunt MP.
