Did you know?
We have students at Monte Vista with Type 1 Diabetes. This means that their pancreases do not produce insulin, which is what breaks down the sugar from the food we eat. Because of this, they endure multiple finger pricks and shots every single day, as well as counting the carbs in everything they eat. There currently is no cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
How can we help?
Thursday, November 14th is National Diabetes Day. On this day, we ask that everyone wears blue to school to raise awareness and show support.
