where people touched by diabetes help each other.

My daughter has been feeling alone in this battle. She was diagnosed the day after Christmas. Tells me she wishes she wasn't the only one in our family with it.

**** there are diabetes groups on FB that have others from the Philly area. We are actually 20 minutes away from Philly on NJ side. You may be able to connect with other on the FB groups with parents who have children her age.

Did you try the Philadelphia chapter of JDRF? If you are not far from NJ, the South Jersey JDRF chapter, located in Cherry Hill, might be worth contacting.

I am a volunteer with the South Jersey chapter on their Walk and Advocacy committees. If that chapter would work for you, send an email to Barbara Garrison , the outreach coordinator, at ****@*****.*** or call her at 856-429-####.
