IM GREATER THAN!
Greater Than’s “Warrior of the Week” goes to quite a stylish little boy named Luka Voorhies from PIttsburgh, PA. He’s rocking some amazing blue tinged hair and is 8 years old and in the third grade. He was diagnosed on 9/12/17 with Type 1 diabetes but his humor is unstoppable! Luka jokes, “why do vampires like Type 1 diabetic kids’ blood? Their blood is so sweet!” Humor is a quality that can help us all get through life’s (and diabetics) ups and downs. Never lose your sense of humor Luka and keep fighting the good fight like a brave type 1 warrior! You are GREATER THAN 1!

Well, I did it guys! I survived the first year of being a mom of a type 1 diabetic! And no I’m not looking for a pat on the back or any sort of accolade, I just can’t believe that next month will be my son’s 1st Diaversary! Time sure does fly and I guess not just when you’re having fun. Up to this point we have been MDI (which means Multiple Daily Injections) with administering Hayden’s insulin.
GREATER THAN SPOTLIGHT
Emery’s Greater Than 1 Diaversary Photoshoot
Here at Greater Than we receive some of the most precious and awesome pictures of Type 1 fighters and we love to spotlight them to show their bravery and to inspire and encourage. This particular little girl, Emery, has definitely caught our attention and the attention of others while on her type 1 journey. She’s been a former Warrior of the Week for Greater than and we also recently posted a heartbreaking and eyeopening photo that has been shared all over the internet, of her sitting surrounded by all the supplies that it has taken to keep her alive for 1 year dealing with diabetes. I am so proud of this family for continually spreading awareness and showing people the many faces of diabetes...
Craig Casper over at the Bravest reached out to us a few weeks ago about being a guest on his show! The show is about us sharing our story on Hayden's Type-1 diagnosis, the process we went through. how we felt with it and what we are doing now to contribute. The cuts are still fairly fresh, and the challenges are very real. If you’re a parent of a child with type 1, this will be an important episode for you. Also, if you or someone you know was recently diagnosed, you will certainly gain a lot of perspective from my conversation with Steven and Jenn Kramer
