We are looking for parents of kids with type 1 diabetes who would be interested in starting a support group here in the Imperial Valley.
Our son, Rodney, is 2 years old and was diagnosed with diabetes at age 9 months.
He is doing very well, but we feel that it would be helpful to talk to others who are dealing with some of the same things. We have heard a lot about support groups in other areas, but there is nothing for type 1's here in the Valley.
There is a certified diabetes educator in the Valley who is willing to work with the group if there is an interest. If there is anyone who thinks they might be interested in being a part of a group like this, please call us at 356-2556.
ROD and MELANIE GADDIS
