This youngster has grabbed my heart, and this week I’m sharing him with you.

Meet Carter: He’s 2 years old and has type 1 diabetes.  He has learned to test his own blood sugars and is doing it here for the first time.

Many people living with diabetes struggle with commitment to testing their own sugars – hopefully Carter serves as an inspiration!

If you’re looking for a cause to support this holiday season, consider the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
