Support for Parents of Children with Diabetes: PEP Squad
Receiving a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes creates a whole set of challenges not only for the child, but for the entire family. Like Building Healthier America, the Diabetes Research Foundation is about keeping things positive and providing support for families managing this chronic illness. Read about their PEP Squad – Parents Empowering Parents on their site and consider joining their private Facebook group today.
The PEP Squad Group on Facebook is, “a place you can connect with other parents of children with diabetes, share stories and struggles, complain, vent, or mentor and shed new light. Someone is usually out there at any time of day – even in the wee hours after that 3 a.m. blood sugar check. Sometimes, all you need is to know you’re not alone and that someone else gets it.” Remember, we’re in this together!
