What's it like to be Sean Busby, Pro Backcountry Snowboarder?

Like my son Jared, Sean Busby is one of millions of amazing individuals who live with Type 1 diabetes {T1D}.

This year, Sean Busby is going to show you what it's like to be T1D for a Day.

This year's T1D4ADAY challenge is brought to you by Lilly Diabetes in partnership with JDRF.

Take the T1D for a Day challenge by texting T1D4ADAY to 63566. You will receive multiple text messages over a 24-hour period from Sean Busby. These messages will show you what it is like to have to stop what you're doing to test your blood sugar, administer insulin and count carbs before you can eat.

If you take the challenge, the JDRF asks that you use the hashtag #T1D4aDay on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to help spread awareness of the disease.

As a mom, I say THANK YOU!! Raising awareness of this difficult disease is exactly what is needed to help find a cure.
