Meet Timothy S., Parent Mentor at Akron Children's Hospital

Timothy S.

Timothy's Story

My wife, Melissa, and I have two wonderful boys, Tim, age 9, and John, age 4. Two years ago on May 8, 2012 our lives changed forever. Tim was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. He had been thirsty and using the bathroom more than usual. Diabetes was the furthest thing from our minds. Today, we have adapted and Tim leads a full, rich life. He is a Cub Scout, plays sports and enjoys school. We keep up hope for a cure, and live every day by keeping Tim healthy. He wears the Omnipod insulin pump and sometimes uses the Dexcom. After Tim's diagnosis, I found that talking to other parents gave me some comfort. I would also like to provide parents who are new to type 1 diabetes the same comfort.
