Wendy Rose and Hallie Addington Share experiances with JFRF's Children’s Congress

Wendy’s oldest daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2005, at the age of 24 months and Celiac Disease in 2008, at the age of 5 years.  Wendy herself was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2009. Balancing the demands of her daughter’s blood sugar management while maintaining a gluten free lifestyle; on top of her role as wife and mother; in addition to maintaining her nursing career can be a challenge at times.  She documents her family’s journey at www.CandyHeartsBlog.com.

Returning to 'Rents - Hallie Addington is the mom of one child, Avery.  Avery was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2009 just after turning 3 years old.  Hallie is a kindergarten teacher and a board member for JDRF's Southwest Ohio Chapter.  Hallie, Jason, and Avery participate in many awareness and fundraising events such at JDRF's Walk to Cure and annual Gala.  Hallie is also a JDRF Advcoate and has lobbied members of Congress in Washington and at home to increase funding and awareness for Type 1 Diabetes.  Hallie writes candidly about her family's experiences living and loving - with type 1 diabetes along for the ride - at The Princess and The Pump (www.theprincessandthepump.com).
