Our Diabetic Life

Meri Schuhmacher is on the podcast this week to talk about what it takes to be a super hero. Meri is raising four (4) sons, ages 18 to 9 (as of this recording) and three of her sons have type 1 diabetes. Naturally, there’s plenty to talk about right there. We also discuss the value of the diabetes community when it comes to her sons, and when extra support was needed during her husband’s battle with cancer. Finally, and much to my amazement, I learn that Brigham Young University has campuses outside of Utah. Enjoy.
