The Boy Who Started This All…

My youngest son, Carter, was diagnosed with Neonatal Monogenic Diabetes, an incredibly rare type of Diabetes, at the age of 6 months old. He spent 31 days at Boston Children’s Hospital before being released home. Neonatal Monogenic Diabetes carries a 1:1,000,000 risk - lucky him!
