Lea, a white girl with brown curly hair pictured at 5 years old in a JDRF t-shirt and as a 20 year old standing on a beach


Stacey talks a lot about her son with type 1 but, as many of you know, she also has a daughter who doesn’t have diabetes. What’s it like to grow up with a sibling who gets more attention for something you can’t do anything about?

Lea was five when her little brother was diagnosed – she’s now 21 and she has a lot to say.
