WHAT IS TYPE 1 DIABETES?

Type One Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the Pancreas produces little to no insulin for the body. Without insulin, the body is unable to breakdown the sugar in the bloodstream to provide energy for the body. Type 1 is often found in children which is why many refer to it as Juvenile Diabetes.  

Message of Hope

We hope that all those affected by Type One Diabetes find peace and never stop believing in a Cure.

My name is Taylor Flesch and I am the founder of the nonprofit Type Taylor dedicated to helping those affected by Type One Diabetes. Back in 2017, I was diagnosed with Type One in the middle of my 8th grade year. It was a whirlwind of emotions and it was a crazy time for not just me but my whole family. With a lot of help, I was able to begin to adapt to my new life and the changes brought on by T1D. The amount of people that reached out to me either through the JDRF or family and friends was just amazing. I had never felt so loved and supported, and I wish to help give that same support to others currently adapting and living with this disease. T1D has opened my eyes in so many ways and I am determined to do my part in helping the Type One Community through JDRF and other projects. Thank you so much for your help in turning Type One into Type None!!
