The Gilchrist family loves to read. When Emmie (pictured bottom right) was first diagnosed with T1D at age 4, Amanda asked her school librarian for all the books that had characters with T1D. There weren’t a lot. Now, when Amanda and Emmie meet authors (in person or online), they ask them to put characters with T1D into their next stories.
Adam Brooks, pictured here with his family, was diagnosed with T1D in 2018.
Dylan Fisher was 27 and training for a marathon in 2019 when a routine physical led to a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. “The diagnosis just felt off,” he said.
If you live in the San Francisco Bay area, you might see Lindsay Tyson cruising around town on her green Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle. Or you could catch her doing flying trapeze at the circus school, where she teaches in her spare time.
