JFRF TypeOneNation Summit 2017 Las Vegas


On today’s DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Daniel, and Lori Cherry chatted with six T1D teens. This show took place in front of a live audience at the ‘JDRF TypeOneNation Summit’ at the famous Flamingo Hotel and Casino on the fabulous Las Vegas Strip.

Hundreds of children with Type-One-Diabetes, along with their families, converged on the Las Vegas Strip to enjoy the day, meeting new friends, and socializing with old friends. There were engaging speakers, classes, exhibits, break-out sessions and, of course, a live presentation of DiabetesPowershow.

Listen to the special insights and remarkable stories from our wonderful teen panelists, Erick Leavitt-14, Oaklie Leavitt-12, Conner Middlebrook-14, Savannah Frailey-15, Charles Birt-12, and Kendall Nether-15.

We would like to extend a special thanks to the teens, their parents, families, and all of the amazing people who put on such a fantastic event.

A wonderful time was had by all!

#160 Hypoglycemia…To Tell or Not To Tell

On today’s DiabetesPowerShow, we talk about sharing the “Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” as it pertains to Hypoglycemia events in your life. We know it is very important that we, as people with Diabetes, speak openly with our Diabetes Care Team about our highs and lows. But what about other people in our lives? Should we tell our friends and co-workers? Today we talk about how sharing could possibly save your life.

On today’s show Charlie Cherry, Chris Daniel, and Lori Cherry talk about a wonderful program that is helping children from all around the world who have Diabetes.
Spare a Rose, Save a Child is simple: they encourage people to buy one less rose on Valentine’s Day, and donate the value of that flower to children with Diabetes. Over the past three years, the campaign has raised $55,844... providing a year’s worth of supplies to over 1,000 children. This year, the campaign will run February 1 until February 14. Their goal is to continue to provide lifesaving supplies to children in need.

‘SPARE A ROSE…SAVE A CHILD’ supports the ’LIFE FOR A CHILD’ program.


'Life for a Child' is an International Diabetes Federation program, with the vision:

Type 1 Diabetes is a lifelong condition requiring daily insulin injections, blood glucose monitoring, education and specialist health care.
Access to this life-saving treatment is often difficult, and sometimes impossible, to achieve in less-resourced countries. Without support, many young people die soon after being diagnosed. Those who survive develop complications, such as eye damage and kidney failure.

We partner with Diabetes centers in lower-income countries, to provide young people with:

    •    Insulin and syringes
    •    Blood glucose monitoring equipment and test strips
    •    Clinical care
    •    HbA1c testing
    •    Diabetes education, workshops, camps, resources
    •    Support for health professional
