If you have diabetes, OR if you are a parent of a child with diabetes, this week’s interview is a must see! Laura Billetdeaux is the VP of Education and Programs at Children with Diabetes, Inc. She has organized every CWD conference since the very first Friends for Life event in June 2000!
Laura is mom to Sam, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1998 at age 8, who now successfully lives and works in NY. During our interview, Laura shares what it was like when Sam was diagnosed, as well as how the first Friends for Life conference ended up happening and how it has now turned into one of the most popular and long-running conferences for families of children (and adults!) with diabetes around the world the world that has been going strong for 15 years. Laura is a delightfully kind and uplifting woman, and I can’t wait for FFL 2016 🙂
