Fernanda & Fortune

We are sisters that have had type 1 Diabetes close to our whole lives. We love having each other to joke around with about the disease but it’s also great to have someone to be serious about it with, someone that knows exactly what you’re going though and feeling. Diabetes makes us who we are and we think we’re pretty awesome people!

How do you inspire others?
We try to inspire others by staying as positive as we can. We’re the go-to family for newly diagnosed people in our community and we love to prove that getting diagnosed with type 1 doesn’t have to stop your life. We don’t hide anything about our diabetes and encourage anyone to ask us anything they might be unsure about.

How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Diabetes has made me who I am today, if I didn’t have diabetes I would just be the blonde friend in the group, nothing else would set me apart from my friends. Diabetes gives me a special outlook on life, I’m much more in tune with my body and how certain foods and even situations can effect my body and even my day.

Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
Niether, I hate ducks.
