Access to affordable, comprehensive health insurance is critical for millions of Americans living with pre-existing conditions such as type 1 diabetes (T1D). On June 17, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in the case of California v. Texas that the states and individuals who argued the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was unconstitutional did not have standing to sue, ending this lawsuit and allowing the ACA to remain the law.

Meet Hattie!

"I have been diabetic for 15 years of my 17 year old life. I was diagnosed when I was two years old and don't know any other way of life than being diabetic. I figured out that I identified as gay sometime in middle school and that wasn't as hard for me as I know it is for other people. I figured that it was who I was and there was no changing it. Some people might not understand and that was okay, as long as I stayed true to myself and I was happy. It brought a lot of sense of individualism because while I knew that there were other diabetics through programs like Camp Kudzu and my endocrinologist, but I didn't know any out and proud gay diabetics. So to my knowledge there was no one in the world like me. In some cases that is true, but the older I get the more I realize that I am not alone in this, and there are so many more people like me.

One thing that the q***r community and the diabetic community both do really well is inclusion. Both groups understand what it is like to not be like those around them and therefor understand the power of acceptance and pride. Since I was diagnosed so young I never thought to be proud of being a diabetic. It was always just something I had to do, something that was incredibly normal to me. But having the gay community with me I learned that it is important to recognize those bits of you that make you different, and to be proud of them. As being diabetic grew harder and I became more and more independent I realized that being proud of myself and my diabetes was just as important as being proud for being gay. It is important to step back and look at yourself and remember that you are your own unique individual with their own personal struggles and triumphs who deserves to be proud of themselves.

In learning to be proud of me being gay I also learned to be proud of me being diabetic. I learned that in what makes us different can also make us stronger and through community we all can feel supported and loved."

https://goo.gl/forms/z5Ts7MADHp6sIaKb2 Hello, young adults with T1D!! Please spend a few minutes participating in my survey and helping me collect data for my senior thesis! Thank you so much!!
JDRF we need some clarity on this article.
Our Youth Ambassadors spent time creating welcome cards for newly diagnosed children at Children's Health. This week was the first time they were handed out, and they over-delivered! The parents were so touched by the sweet wishes from the children! And this little girl is the exact age of the Ambassador who wrote her a note, and she loves soccer just like the Ambassador! She read every word out loud to her mom with a huge smile. Both moms are now going to meet up with their T1D daughters. #BestJobEver #JDRFYouthAmbassadors #LessUntilNone
