He played a pivotal role in passing legislation in the United States regarding the awareness of the missed diagnosis of diabetes, Reegan’s Rule was the first of its kind such law, in North Carolina. He has been instrumental advising the national initiative with the Beyond Type1Foundation that has established awareness and education programs both in the US and abroad. He was awarded two Telly Awards in the Health Category for his video on the missed diagnosis of T1D which he wrote and produced, and also 14 other Telly Awards for various diabetes media outlets.

Allison Story

Hello there, my name is Allison, I am the owner and lead designer of a local flower shop, Flora & Fauna, and I am a type 1 diabetic.

My diagnosis story was thankfully, relatively uneventful. I was diagnosed at the age of 13, just after starting my eighth grade school year. I can remember the discomfort leading up to my diagnosis, yet not realizing that what I was experiencing was any different from the other teenagers around me. There are so many hormonal changes that occur throughout those pre-teenage years leading up to becoming a teenager, that I felt like what I was going through was “normal”. It also didn’t help that I had, what seemed like, reasonable explanations for all of the ways I was feeling which made me never question that I was sick.

Henri Noël will be supporting HADC with their forever strands with proceeds going to HADC.
