The Diabetes Online Community (DOC) is growing. Beyond Type 1 was founded in “February 2015, and seeks to bring a new level of respect, understanding and support for those living with type 1 diabetes. BT1 wants to highlight the brilliance of those fighting this disease every day while always working toward ensuring a cure is on its way” (beyondtype1.org). BT1 has a great Instagram account that shares an image and a story, just like Henry’s story.
Henry’s story on Beyond Type 1’s Instagram: I live beyond by telling my friends about my pump. I’m brave when I get site changes. When I grow up I want to be a paleontologist and look for dinosaur bones on the beach! My name is Henry and this is how I live beyond!
