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. Emery is strong, beautiful, brave, vulnerable and even sad at times which we saw in a video posted when she was needing a pump site change. With the support of her amazing family and her fighter spirit, we have no doubt that she will only grow in character and strength through the years.
For Emery’s DIAVERSARY she had photos professionally taken with her “diabuddy” McKayla in Greater Than apparel and I seriously cried when I saw them. They are simply beautiful and full of pride! No child or person should ever be embarrassed about having this disease. Showing it off in these gorgeous photos is inspiring and heartwarming. Also having a “diabuddy” (friend that also has diabetes) is such a special thing and bond.
I’m sharing these to praise this family and sweet T1 Warrior, to inspire and encourage others and also to give ideas to families wishing to celebrate diaversaries in special ways. Be proud, show your strength, be an example and never stop fighting. Thank you to the Dyer family for seeing what our company is about and for portraying our message perfectly without even trying. Your family is Greater Than 1!
