You may remember my visit to APDP – Associção Protetora dos Diabéticos de Portugal – on August 2012 when I met nurse Lourdes, you can find this post HERE. Since then, Louders invited me to the Ser Jovem com Diabetes (Being young with diabetes) project from APDP.
From Brazil, Julyana Messeder, IDF Young Leader Diego Trindade and, from Urugay, Maria Monteiro, also participated on this project, besides awesome Portuguese youngsters with diabetes.
This book is fulfilled with great testimonials on what it means (to each one) to be a young person with diabetes (Ser Jovem com Diabetes). It is distributed to APDP attendants to inspire and show different perspectives of those living with diabetes.
Hopefully it will soon be available on a web version so we can have more access here in Brazil. An awesome material and I´m glad to be part of this project. Thank you friends from Portugal!
