Meet Grady. He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in July of 2021, when he was just 7 years old.

In the beginning, life with diabetes was hard. Grady was young and struggled to understand what was happening to his body. And why.

For all my life, all I have known is one thing: type 1 diabetes. As a child, as a teen, and even now as a young adult, diabetes has accompanied me through every season of my life from the day I was diagnosed at 15 months old.
