Hey there! Recently connected here and would love to find my soon to be 8 year old son a friend who is also T1D. We are located in Hampton Roads Virginia!
Hey, I’m Laney I’m 14 and don’t live in your area, but I just wanted to let you know that if you guys ever need anything, feel free to talk to me. I would be happy to help him out and give him some dia-buddy advice for dealing with his diabetes because I’ve been there and I know how hard it can get especially at his age.
Hi Amanda, my daughter is the same age, but we’re in northern VA. We do get to Richmond sometimes, so maybe if you all wanted to meet and let the kids play, let me know. Jason
I’m not from Virginia, but I have attended a juvenile diabetes camp in my home state for 11 years going to be my 12th this year. I have made amazing friendships with so many people over the years and we all talk very frequently even though we all attend different colleges and love far apart. I believe there are a few camps in Virginia for kids with diabetes. It can be a little nerve wracking for first year campers and parents but it is the best decision my parents and I have ever made. If it’s something you might Ben interested in, you could look into it or ask me any questions. Hope he can make some awesome diabuddies!
