I tried contacting my local JDRF chapter about getting involved in some sort of mentoring program, but they didn’t have anything like what I was hoping to do. Ideally I want to work with kids (and their parents) with diabetes and help them learn to balance D with a normal childhood. In doing so I thought it might be somewhat of a relief for these kids’ parents to meet someone who has been (somewhat) successfully managing D for 20 years.
I guess I really have a two-fold question: (1) is anyone aware of any program similar to what I described above; (2) if not, would any of you be interested in setting something like that up even if it was in connection with the JDRF (or another similar organization)?
Thanks in advance,
