Practice News Our youngest son Ben (now almost 11yrs old) was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 18mths old. At diagnosis he was very seriously ill - we were immediately thrown into a whole new world of constant blood checks, injections, insulin pumps/cannula, glucose sensors, counting every single thing he eats ... the list is endless, and exhausting! It’s difficult to explain the effect a diagnosis like this has on the whole family and more than anything on Ben. Once I’d found my feet I focused on fundraising for JDRF - the only charity dedicated solely to improving treatment and ultimately finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. Having previously undertaken half marathons, Kilimanjaro and the compass challenge (cycling and climbing our way around Scotland!) , this year as it is Ben’s tenth anniversary of diagnosis I am undertaking ten challenges between now and October • Everest base camp (7th March) • Forth bridge abseil • Tough Mudder • Edinburgh half marathon • Parachute jump • Ten Munro’s in a weekend • London to Paris cycle • JDRF one walk - fun walk for everyone • Berlin Marathon • Ben’s secret challenge - I find out on the day what Ben has come up with! Any help from any IVC colleagues is hugely appreciated!
