Emily Wilson is an amazing inspiration to anybody living with Type 1 Diabetes. She is a multisport athlete and an all round good human.
We had the pleasure of developing a bracelet with Emily with all proceeds going back to Diabetes NZ and the good they do in the community. To read Emily's story - click here.
Our favourite part of her story is:
"A doctor at the hospital told me, “Oh, you’ll have to really modify what you do. You probably won’t be able to compete like you used to, and you’ll have to create lots of routine.”
I had a strong grasp of the disease from studying it and a great understanding of my own body. Right there and then, I thought, “Heck no. I’m not adapting my life for diabetes – it’s coming along for the ride.”
