Beyond Type 1 is a diabetes lifestyle organization that has created an extremely vibrant community of type 1’s and their tribes on both social media, and in real life. The organization was founded by Nick Jonas, Juliet de Baubigny, Sarah Lucas, and Sam Talbot – all people either with diabetes or a child with diabetes.
I don’t want to say Beyond Type 1 saved me, but it certainly opened up my world to a group of people and a type of mindset I never knew could have such a profound impact on my life as a type 1.
If you or someone you know is struggling with the powerful loneliness or weariness that can often accompany this stupid disease, don’t walk…run to the Beyond Type 1 website. There you will find a myriad of information, articles, and people to connect with who just….get it.
If you ever have any questions about Beyond Type 1, I am part of the global ambassador council, and can speak to many of the incredible, life-changing programs they currently have in the works!
