    Both of my daughters have Type 1 Diabetes. We hope to someday visit Banting House to honour him, our biggest hero. Without his life-saving discovery I would have lost my oldest daughter 14 years ago just before her 6th birthday and my second daughter 17 months ago around her 15th birthday. Instead I am watching them grow into fine young women, both very passionate about Type 1 research and both working towards fulfilling their dreams!

Let us know what you think - we'd love to hear from you!
