My name is Mae and this is me and my dog Charlie. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on February 27, 2014 (at the age of 5). It has been a lot of hard work to learn about Type One Diabetes and how it affects my body. I am now 10 years old and I use an insulin pump and a CGM to manage my Type 1 Diabetes.
Charlie is our yellow lab. I always wanted a dog! When I was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes my mom and dad decided that we would get a dog. He is my best friend! Charlie is not a medical dog but some dogs are used for people with T1D and can help detect when their levels drop dangerously low or spike too high.
I wanted to come up
with an idea to help raise awareness for T1D. 10% of all gross profits from the sales of Charlie & Mae product will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Thanks so much for visiting!
