Hey everyone,
My mom was talking to the JDRF represenitive of Central Iowa and South Dakota and she was saying how my dad and I both have type one diabetes. She told us that we were the only ones.

Which makes me wonder is this more rare then I thought?
Pleas give me a shout out if you are Parent, Child Duo!

Have a spectacular day,
Sydney:D
