Shoshana, we'd like to hear more about your experience with diabetes during WWII. Were you born in France? How did you get to the US? Please consider writing a Blog here, I know many of our members would like to hear your story.

Shoshana, are you talking about your own experience when you say "75 years since I was not yet 3"? Does that mean you have been type 1 for 75 years? Plese tell us more. I have been type 1 for 66 years and am looking forward to the 75 year Joslin medal.
