Moira McCarthy, JDRF volunteer & outreach speaker and author shares her experience & advice on the highs & lows of raising a child with Type 1 diabetes. 

Moira entered the blogger world against her will — she had no intention of starting one. But after being asked to guest post at the fabulous diabetesmine.com, and seeing the incredible response to her guest blog, Moira got thinking: maybe I do need to join this world. And thus, Despite Diabetes was born.

Moira is also a top volunteer for diabetes, having been named JDRF’s International Volunteer of the Year in 2007 and served as National Chair of JDRF’s International Board’s Outreach Committee and Government Grass Roots Advocacy Committee, as well as ChairMom of JDRF’s Children’s Congress, the foundation’s largest and most visible event.

Despite Diabetes aims to discuss daily life, advocacy, cure therapies, feelings, baseball (from time to time) and hopes to be an unabashed voice in the world of working toward a cure.
