Season 1, episode 9: DiabeteSpeaks is a special project of T1D Exchange and the Glu community--join us and become part of type 1 diabetes research today: visit www.myglu.org. In the second part of the interview with RoseAnn and her daughter Jessica, they talk about the family's participation in the Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet. RoseAnn hoped to learn if any of her other children would be likely to develop it, but instead, learned that she herself will, and talks about what she has learned from her daughter while participating in the prevention study: "I don’t really understand fully how it affects her, and I know that’s coming. So that’s some of the things I think about. Like, when I can see her emotions or I can see how she’s feeling, and I often will think, 'I’m going to be in her shoes,' and it’s scary."
