We founded Jack’s Purpose to bring support, resources and information to families affected by type 1 diabetes and to bring awareness to our communities. On Feb 3, our son Jack was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. My wife Sarah has had type 1 diabetes since she was 11 years old, so we had experience with diabetes management. Right away we utilized some of the latest technology and started Jack on a Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system. This one step instantly gave Jack a lot of independence since we can now view Jack’s blood sugar level and trends through an app on our phone. We decided we wanted to take our experiences and any resources we have and use them to support families that are affected by type 1 diabetes.
