T1F Donation Appeal 2019
Meet brave little August (Augie), she was recently diagnosed with Type1 Diabetes; she just had a birthday and turned the big 3.
Augie lives in Melbourne and spent a week in the Monash Children's Hospital learning about her new life with Type1 Diabetes.
Augie didn't get a day off Type1 on her birthday and will spend a lifetime doing multiple daily insulin injections, continuous blood glucose monitoring, all whilst carb counting everything she eats.
Augie's Mum Kara tells us " It's so sad that we still need to inject her on her special day, you never get a day off"
"Type1 Diabetes is a chronic, lifelong disease, and it's relentless and consuming. Sadly, amongst the families we support, the most common age to be diagnosed is 2. It's also very difficult to diagnose in a young child at this age, as they often can't explain the common symptoms. Parent's need so much understanding and support, as a diagnosis is a traumatic experience" - Ange Liston-McCaughley, Founder and CEO
