We’re sure that Sir Frederick Banting, the discoverer of insulin, would be incredibly proud of his relative Rebecca Redmond. Not only is she brimming with creativity and talent, but she’s also not afraid to approach tricky topics and share her own inspiring insights gained from life’s challenges. These include being diagnosed with T1D and suffering from needle phobia.
It took Rebecca many years to move on from multiple daily injections to Pod therapy with the Omnipod® System, but once she started, she never looked back. She feels it gave her the gift of ‘more time’ and wishes she’d started sooner. As a busy mom, artist, writer and advocate for PWD (people with diabetes), we get that time is precious!
Rebecca was among the first in Canada to start on the Omnipod DASH® and we’re thrilled to welcome her as an official ‘Podvocate’ for Canada in 2021!
Omnipod® has given me the most precious thing: time. I no longer lose moments fretting and panicking over injections. The gift of time allows me to be more present in my life.
