Stacy Mitchell joins Loraine and Bennet to chat about building local, in real life support. Stacy is the mom of 5 year old kindergartner Caden James. Caden James was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in April 2011, two days after his second birthday. Completely unaware of the disease or anyone currently living with type 1, Stacy reached out on social media to find other diabetic families. Within a month of Caden James' diagnosis, Stacy became active with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Alabama chapter and worked to create a local outreach group called the Bolusers of Birmingham. The Bolusers of Birmingham now have over 140 families affected by type 1 diabetes. Caden James wears an Animas Ping insulin pump and a Dexcom G4 continuous glucose meter. Nightscout, the CGM in The Cloud initiative, is also part of Caden James' apparatus. Stacy and her family reside in Birmingham, Alabama.
