This is such a strong example of being committed to making a real difference. Not just for family members, but for the millions of people who live with T1D. Thank you for dispelling some myths and for working so hard against the disease!

I remember Zoe very well when I was the librarian at Foothill High. Zoe's always been a "can do" type of person who volunteers to help others, and was an active parent volunteer for Foothill, so her efforts to help push for a cure for diabetes comes as no surprise.

Glad to see that Hannah is doing so well. I remember when she was just a freshman...now I feel old!
