I'M GREATER THAN!
Greater Than’s “Warrior of the Week” goes to Jayden Hernandez from Filmore, CA! He is 7 years old and in the 2nd grade. He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on 12/21/12 and hasn’t let it keep him from doing anything that he wants to do. He loves to play Fortnite and Roblox and also play with his service dog Nala. His mother Monica also loves to be an advocate to other Mom’s of Type one kiddos to take care of their mental health and keep doing the things that make them happy too. Monica is an avid hiker and wants other moms to know it’s ok to take some time for yourself to keep You healthy and happy. We couldn’t agree more Monica!
Keep being a powerful duo and showing the world that Type 1 can’t slow you down!
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 our conversation.
