One of our longest standing Volunteers from South Otago Sandra Grant knows what it is like to live with Type-1 Diabetes. Sandra and her husband have been living on insulin injections for 23 years. They are very active in fundraising running auctions on trademe, sweepstakes and administering the Chasing a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes Facebook page.
“I have been living on insulin injections for 21 years and my husband for 23 years (we met at a Diabetes Youth camp 18 years ago). In all our time with diabetes, this is the most realistic chance we have seen for a cure. Plus, it has the potential to cure other auto-immune diseases."
