Today, on the Lauren's Hope blog, we welcome guest blogger, Jacquie Paul Wojcik, whose blog, Typical Type 1, chronicles her (busy, healthy, active, funny, normal) life with Type 1 Diabetes. We hope you'll check her out!
Denise and Jeff Pasko are busy small business owners who operate Lausch’s Moving & Storage in Berks County, Pennsylvania. In addition to running a successful business, the Paskos are parents to twin girls, Rachel and Megan, 7. That sounds like a busy enough life for most, but the Paskos, whose daughter Megan has Type 1 Diabetes, recently launched a local diabetes support group, which, in just a few months, has grown into its own nonprofit organization, Berks T1D Connection.

On June 18th, Shari, a Lauren’s Hope customer and mom of three, will mark the completion of her first year parenting a child with T1D, despite the fact that a year ago, she likely wouldn’t have known what that abbreviation meant. “We don’t have any family members with diabetes,” she says of her son, Ryan’s, diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes, “So, this really came out of left field.”
This post is brought to you by a special customer of ours, Kristi Domke. Hello Lauren's Hope blog readers! Much like Lauren's Hope, I have dedicated my life to helping those struggling with diabetes. I am happy to share my story with you and tell you about myself, my personal experience with T1D, and my involvement with D.R.E.A.M., the organization that my life with diabetes has brought me to become a part of. Please read this post and we can all come together as we dream for a cure and make a difference!
