Age: 13
Age at T1D diagnosis: 5

Noah, the oldest of four kids, is a great big brother and an excellent role model. He loves all sports, especially lacrosse and football, and enjoys fishing, reading and hanging out with his friends. He is also an A student in advanced classes. When Noah was diagnosed with T1D at age five, his family became super involved with the T1D community and JDRF, doing all they could to advance T1D research, participating in many events, and even hosting their own annual fundraiser. About his family dynamic, Noah says, “My family tries to be very proactive with diabetes, and we always try to find the humor in everything. Sometimes laughter really is the best medicine…other than insulin, of course!”
