After a year like no other, we are rapidly moving towards another Festive Season – a time where we celebrate with family and friends, and reflect on what positives we can take from challenging times.
The power of this positivity is demonstrated in our latest Appeal as we transition into Christmas, and highlights how two people and their journey with diabetes, have led to positive outcomes.
Sandra is living with type 2 diabetes and shares her story of diagnosis only a few years ago. She reflects on the initial feelings she had, and then how changes she made, changed her life to a happy and positive one.
“With the help of Diabetes SA, the diagnosis of diabetes has not prevented me doing anything I wanted. I made the effort to find out what I needed to do, and I live a full life doing what I enjoy doing! I haven’t given up anything, but I’ve gained so much!”
Andrew has been living with type 1 diabetes since the young age of 13 months and his journey has very much been a family matter. Now at 19, Andrew openly shares some of the most important parts of his life, and what helped shape him to the confident young man he is today.
“There is nothing you can’t do if you just work out your diabetes plan, and there are people to help you at Diabetes SA. You definitely are not alone.”
Your support can help us reach our goals to empower people living with or at risk of diabetes in South Australia. Will you take this journey with us?
