Don't have a friend or colleague that has a child that has juvenile diabetes. I might ask one of my friends if she would like to. If I ever came across someone that has diabetes I would let them know about this organization. ADA helped me advocate for my son when he was denied to go to school. I enjoy doing and going to their activities.
