Hi, I’m Matthew! I have had Type 1 diabetes since I was six years old. That means my body doesn’t process nutrients correctly. It’s not easy being different. So I like helping other kids who feel different too!
How You Can Help
Include others: Say hi when you see someone by themselves at school, or invite someone new to sit with you.
Get involved: Contact your local hospital or Red Cross and see if they need donations like quilts, stuffed animals, or even medical ID bracelets.
Get informed: Learn about a disability or illness and teach your Scout troop or activity day group about it. Learn first aid so you can help people in need.
