Diabetes Hands Foundation has saved my life. Although I had type 1 diabetes for many years, TuDiabetes.com helped me connect with many other people who supported me and provided invaluable advice about blood sugar management and better ways to exercise. Life with this chronic disease is a lot easier thanks to TuDiabetes and the work of DHF.

My youngest child was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 6. Nine years and four pumps later (longboarding is tough on pumps) he is a healthy and happy teenager who, on a daily basis, grows in his ability to independently manage his diabetes. Diabetes Hands Foundation has greatly contributed to his growth because of the support it offered me, his mother. Receiving advice and gaining perspective from other caregivers, DHF provided a community that kept this mother moving forward one day at a time.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

weekly contact with members of DHF.

While I don't have diabetes myself, I have friends that do. I was very moved by the way in which the Diabetes Hands Foundation uses art to express the powerful emotions people have in coping with this condition. It really sensitized me to understand what they are going through.

This organization has allowed me to connect with others who have diabetes. This may not seem like a big deal, but it really is. Helping people with a condition, such as diabetes, connect with others allows someone like me to not feel so alone, so isolated. It also provides a lot of helpful information about diabetes management. I know I've learned more about diabetes and how to deal with certain situations from this organization than I have from all of my doctors and educators. This organization is a blessing to anyone touched by diabetes.

I first met Manny and Andreina (DHF founders) in the summer of 2008. I myself do not have diabetes but am touched by it: my niece has Type I. For me, DHF has opened my eyes to the day-to-day challenges (and multiple complications) that can come from having diabetes. It has helped me understand the issues my niece has to deal with every day and has given me a new understanding (and respect) for those dealing with diabetes every day. I am also motivated to volunteer my time by the fact that DHF does so much to help others. I feel proud that I am helping this organization make a difference in the lives of so many people. When I read the comments and posts from the community members, I realize how important it is to provide this place where people can share their ups and downs and get support from others.

The Great!

The Diabetes Hands Foundation is masterful at engaging people with diabetes to educate and spread awareness. Through TuDiabetes.com, they have built a cohesive and inspirational social network for people with diabetes. It is truly first in its class.

Five years ago, the diabetes online community could fit in a single room. Now it draws together hundreds of thousands of people. Diabetes Hands Foundation is one of the centerpieces of that transformation.
