Danusia's wonderful tale

2017-01-23 16:20:00

How did Danusia celebrate her sweet sixteen? By a solo trip to Italy! She has been learning Italian for a while and decided to test her skills in Italy. Danusia loves to learn the beautiful tongue, but she dreams about becoming a professional videographer, because she says that films are the best way of sharing stories between people. Danusia is seventeen, and she likes hanging out with her friends. A regular teenager, you might think. What does she have in common with the GOCC? 

Danusia has been living with type 1 diabetes since she was three years old. 



Danusia was one of the first children, who have received personal insulin pumps within the framework of our Nationwide Programme for Personal Insulin Pump Treatment for Children. A personal insulin pump allows the child to enjoy an active lifestyle, because the device measures blood sugar and monitors it automatically. 

Today, Danusia monitors her disease by herself, and even though it requires a lot of patience and has to be done systematically, she does not stop to complain even for a moment. We keep our fingers crossed for you, and will be looking out for your name in film credits in the future! 

In 2009, the National Health Fund began to finance personal insulin pumps for children, and the Foundation decided to terminate the programme in order to focus on supporting pregnant women with diabetes instead. 



Danusia lives her life to the full
