On Halloween, third grader Kelly Kunik anticipated dressing up, trick-or-treating, and eating candy with her friends. Instead, she was learning about insulin and what a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes would mean for the future of her childhood. Kelly now wears a MiniMed pump and serves as a blogger and diabetes advocate. We are so glad that she shared her Halloween diagnosis story with us! Leave Kelly a note of encouragement in the comments, and be sure to wish her a Happy Diaversary!  Read More >

She is also a busy wife and mom of two kids who finds passion in encouraging women with type 1 diabetes during pregnancy and motherhood.  Read More >

There is no getting around it...I must embrace the holiday as if it were my own birthday.  Read More >
