Jed doesn't look sick, but he has a hidden deadly disease
Over 1,100 children and their families are currently living with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and are being cared for by Perth Children’s Hospital Diabetes Team. For these children and families, there is no rest when it comes to treatment.
As one of the most common chronic childhood conditions, T1D requires life-long management to replace the insulin the body has stopped producing and regulate their blood glucose levels. Thankfully, advancements in T1D research and technology like insulin pumps are giving children like Jed and other T1D families the chance to live normal lives.
With your help we can fund even more life-changing equipment and technology like insulin pumps for children and families like Jed’s. Donate today and help more WA sick children get well and stay well.
