8 years old
Olivia was diagnosed with type 1 Easter weekend 2016 at 4 years old totally out of the blue. It has been a rollercoaster ride so far and we are learning more and more all the time. HEY kids has been such a huge support for us as a family dealing with such a life changing condition both in educating us with the day to day ins and outs of living with type 1 and making us aware of new technology coming out and also the opportunity to spend time with kids and parents facing the same challenges. Life with Type 1 does not have to stop and Olivia is testament to this. She is full of life, fun and laughter, it’s never a dull moment in our house, she loves doing all the things any 6 year old does in particular singing, dancing, scooting, swimming, playing with friends and her little sister Rosanna, walking our two dogs & looking after our pony Patch.
