Dear Type 1 Friends and Family,

 

We can't sit back and wait for someone else to do what WE know needs to be done to save lives...Awareness Saves Lives. Unfortunately, Type 1 chose us. We did not choose it. But because we now live it, we fully understand the potential fatal results of undiagnosed Type 1 Diabetes. And because there is so much misinformation and misunderstanding about Type 1 Diabetes, it is up to us to carry this message to the world. Even though this form of diabetes is more rare, it is also more severe. Right now 15,000 people are unaware that this disease is crouching at their doorstep waiting to strike this year...and it WILL strike. Since it is an autoimmune disease and nothing at this point can be done to prevent Type 1 Diabetes, our only defense is to recognize the warning signs when it hits and get to the doctor immediately and request a test. The sooner the warning signs are recognized, the sooner treatment can begin...Awareness Saves Lives! The later the signs and symptoms are recognized the greater the chance of death.

 

Our mission at Awareness Saves Lives is to save lives by creatively displaying the warning signs on various products in an easy to remember design. In 2014, we will be adding many new products to our web site to help accomplish our mission. Our goal is to have those who read the warning signs on our products easily recognize them, easily remember them if they see them in someone they know and love and then take action by requesting a test from their doctor. (Recognize. Remember. Request.)

 

Equip yourself as well as friends and family to carry this message to local communities around the country. Type 1 awareness fights against misinformation, misunderstanding and the sheer lack of knowledge.

 

Jump in the fight with us. Together we can save lives.
