Diabetes Hands Foundation announces Seed Grant Recipients...Our Wisdom Shared recieved one for:


Rumor Mill

Rumor Mill will be a graphic novel aimed at inspiring and informing teens living with Type 1 diabetes. The plot explores how a teen can respond constructively when the very action he must take to maintain his health (i.e., injecting insulin) is misunderstood, mislabeled, and become grist for the rumor mill. The DHF Seeds grant will support the writing, production, and distribution of this graphic novel.

WE ARE HERE TO MAKE YOUR JOURNEY EASIER

Our Wisdom Shared is a parent support group on-line.  We cover the everyday non-medical issues that arise from being a parent of a chronically ill child.

What is a Chronic Illness? It's an illness that has no cure.  Parents that live with a chronic illness fight daily for their children to stay healthy and safe.  They spends many sleepless nights worrying about their childrens future.

Within our site you will find other parent ideas, resources, a forum to ask and answer questions, and contact information for specific questions you  might have.

This site is for non-medical information.  If you're looking for medical answers please contact your medical team for those answers.

Our forum will have a question of the week/month.  Every parent with a chronically ill child may answer or add to any forum.  The more sharing the better to help others.

If you are looking to start a live support group or a mentor group please contact us at
ows@ourwisdomshared.org
We will be happy to help organize your need.

We will also be heading up a needs page.  I will post the most non-medical needs in specific areas.
