Meet our friends!
Hi, I'm Lilly and I'm friends with Liz. I like painting, and swimming with my friends.
I didn't know anything about Type 1 diabetes until Liz told me about it.
She taught how to spot the signs of a hypo, so now I know how to help her, and when to tell the teacher.
Hi, I'm Jessica and I'm friends with Liz too!
I love sports and my pet cat, Smokey.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when I was three years old, and I met Liz on a diabetes kids holiday.
We did cool stuff like raft building and canoeing.
How are you doing? My name is Danny and I'm best mates with Nadeem.
I like acting and playing football.
I was really interested when Nadeem told me about his Type 1 diabetes.
Hi, I'm Jack's sister Chloe.
I like dancing and writing stories.
I was upset when Jack was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes because I didn't understand it. Now after learning more, I know everything is OK.
Hi, I'm Carl and I'm friends with Chloe and Ella.
I like skateboaring and drawing.
My dad has Type 1 diabetes so I know it doesn't stop you from doing anything you want to do!
