The Happy Camper Project
What if every child with a chronic illness like diabetes had a connected, informed and engaged network of caregivers surrounding them?
Founding Story: Share a story about a key experience or spark that helps the network understand why this project got started or a story about how you became inspired about the potential for this project to succeed.
Over 30 years and tens of thousands of children, I have learned that the arduous daily requirements of blood glucose monitoring, insulin administration, choices about food, responses to emergencies should not be placed solely in the hands of a child. They need trained, supportive and engaged caregivers surrounding their efforts, motivating correct choices and actions. We must build a trained, engaged, informed community of family, medical, school and after-school caregivers to promote wellness.
