Name:  Westin

Age:  12

Age at Diagnosis:  2

Hobbies:  Playing video games, playing electric guitar, listening to music

Westin is very mature for his age. He has to be. At 12 years old, he has a lot of responsibilities. While playing video games or playing with friends, he has to keep one eye on life and one eye on his diabetes. He doesn’t get to be carefree with no worries in the world.   Diabetes doesn’t stop him, but it does interrupt him.


As parents, our wish is for him to know what carefree means.
