Middlesex County NJ T1D Buddies

My 11 year old son is having a hard time coming to terms with having diabetes. We don’t know anyone with diabetes and it does not run in our family. He’s very self-conscious and feels if he ignores it, then it will go away. I could really use some help in connecting with someone. Thank you!

@Louroa1, hi Aileen, your son sounds like me.

The New Jersey Metro and Rockland JDRF chapter might be a place to start - the HQ is in Woodbridge.

1480 US HWY 9 North
Suite 306
Woodbridge, NJ 07095

The local chapters typically have fund raisers and its a place to meet hopefully other local families.
