Girl With the Portable Pancreas GIVEAWAY

  
  
  

Do you have diabetes or know someone who has diabetes? Are you looking for a source of online support, friendship, and entertainment? Do you love Lauren’s Hope and want to win FREE medical ID jewelry?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you’ll be very excited to meet our friend Stacey, the Girl with the Portable Pancreas!

“My name is Stacey, @PortblPancGrl, author of The Girl with the Portable Pancreas blog. I am a 30-something year old type 1 diabetic who lives and grew up in NYC. I have been very happily married for 8+ years, have worked in investment banking for 13 years, and am a huge gadget fanatic. I am an identical twin and so is my husband! I love being an aunt, reading on my Kindle, listening to music, and doing things for others.

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on Christmas eve in 1981. I was 5 years old. Honestly I don't really remember life without diabetes. Sometimes I think that worked in my favor since I don't remember my life really changing. I feel it has made me more conscious and proactive about my overall health, which is not a bad thing.”

Stacey’s journey with diabetes has inspired her to share her story on her blog. Her goal is “to educate those people who don't know much about diabetes, to offer support for those who also live with it and to advocate on the issues important to the diabetes community.”

“Living with diabetes is hard...and sometimes may even seem impossible.” Stacey reminds us. “It's okay to get frustrated, but don't let that frustration build up. These days, there is a huge community out there (both online and off) willing to lend a helping hand.”

That community is never more than a click away, thanks to online resources for diabetes. Some of Stacey’s favorite sources of information and support are www.diabetessocmed.com, www.tudiabetes.org, www.diabetesdaily.com, www.diabetessisters.org, www.tcoyd.com, and www.act1diabetes.org.

To learn more about Stacey and her story and to enter for your chance to win a FREE Lauren’s Hope medical ID bracelets, visit her blog today! She is hosting a Lauren’s Hope giveaway this Wednesday, June 22 and will be announcing the winner on Friday, June 24. Don’t miss out!

Thank you for sharing. My son has Type 1 and pumps with a blue Animas pump. We love the pump. Diabetes is so frustrating. It is great to hear from people with such positive attitudes who reach out to others. I am always looking for ways to make his life easier for him.

Mandi, Thank you so much for introducing yourself. We do try to make diabetes a bit more tolerable by offering medical identification jewelry that people actually feel good about wearing. Let me know if there's anything I can help you with in the future.
