    Nova Scotia Schools now has a new policy that includes children with diabetes!!!

    Parents will be involved in individual plans to suit their childs needs, this is a huge step..Ontario will be next..it has to be. They are fight so hard it will pay off!

    Two maritime provinces taking care of their children with diabetes. Loving it! :) But I would LOVE to see the whole country get on board with this. This is taking too long!!

    Thanks everyone! I wish I could take credit for it, we are fighting for the rights of our kids, and made a few phone calls and emails. But we were lucky enough to have an MLA that's brother has been Type 1 since he was young, and understands so helped push!

    Shana you know if there is anything we can do to help I will :) We are all in this together!

    Mimi...Shana has a great group of parents supporting her, but could use all the help she can get!
