This is me giving myself my first shot at Camp Ho Mita Koda 9 years ago. It was scary but after I did it seemed easy and now I can do it all the time!




Here is my dog, Sir King Charles Chester Of York Treubig. We call him Chez or Chez Man or Chez Myster or Chezie Whezie. He is so cute in the snow because he jumps up and then comes down and is covered by snow so you can't see him. I took him sled ridding this weekend and he loved it! I just got him for Christmas.

This is my brother with our puppy.


Here is my NEW puppy, "Rusty" or Sir Lancelot Russell of Yorkie Treubig.


This is my soccer picture. I take my pump off when I am playing soccer because I am the goalie most of the time.



This is me on my horse Bo. He likes to canter and jump. I rode him at Nottoway Farms (2002) .

This is AJ. He is ornery all the time.  I rode him at Hudson Equestrian Center (2003).

This was my favorite horse, Jebes. I won 3rd place on him at a horse show. I rode him at Pferd Stables (2004) 

This is Fia. She is great to ride at Pferd Stables.

This is Patches. He is sweet.

This is Kitty. She is the best horse I have ever ridden! Isn't she cute? I don't own her but I lease her 3 times a week. She lives at Pferd Stables- 2004.

This is me testing while ridding Kitty (see this on the Children With Diabetes Web site).

This is Stephanie on Chuck. They won 2-1st place and 1-2nd place and then took the best in show ribbon at Chagrin Valley Farm Horse Show November 2004. Chuck is owned by Marlynna of Pferd Stables.

I went to Washington DC for the JDRF Annual Meeting and met President Bush!! I asked him to support stem cell research and increase funding for diabetes research (this picture is just a joke, but I would ask him if I ever meet him!!).

I met Jody at a POLO weekend getaway in Richfield, OH. Jody DeMarco is truly grateful for her many blessings.  Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1970 at the age of 13, the 46-year-old Philadelphia resident celebrates freedom from the need for insulin injections.   “I have a whole new life,” she says.  Jody recently received two islet cell transplants through the JDRF Center for Islet Transplantation at the University of Pennsylvania—one on November 2, 2001, and another on January 9, 2002.  Since the second transplant, she has not required insulin injections to control her blood sugar levels and says she is finally living a “relatively normal” life.
Like most patients, Jody needed two transplants before she was completely free from the need for insulin injections.  Her first transplant in November 2001 allowed her to decrease her insulin requirements from 44 units to 6 units per day.  After the second procedure two months later, she was able to discontinue all shots.   “I still check my blood sugar once in the morning and once at night, mostly out of habit,” says Jody.  “But I haven’t had any problems.  I can eat cake and candy and french fries… it’s great!”

  Back to People Diabetes Care in Interesting Places

Diabetes care is part of life, so we often find ourselves checking blood sugars, taking insulin, and changing infusion sets in interesting places and at interesting times. Here are some great examples of people living life to the fullest and taking care of their diabetes at the same time. We've organized the photos by category and show the most recent three here. Follow the links to see all the photos.
