Diagnosed with MODY 3 diabetes 10 years ago
I found friends at the Type 1 Events and they’re like family now, so that’s why I’ve continued to volunteer for several years.
Tara, 27, from Hampshire, has been living with maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY) 3 for 10 years. She’s been volunteering at our Type 1 Events for many years and has missed them, since they’ve had to be cancelled due to Covid lockdowns.
She also works as a primary school teacher and gave birth to her daughter named Felicity last year. Tara's shared her story of how she stayed well during lockdown whilst getting to know her new baby.
