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.
