Andrew has been living with T1D since he was 10 years old. A ninth-grader at Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, Andrew enjoys reading, video games, basketball, cross-country and track. He participates in the Walk to Cure Diabetes with his family as “DB’s Crusaders” and is involved with the UCSF Symposium, MUG Root Beer Float Day with the Oakland A’s and the JDRF Youth Ambassador Program. Andrew says, “Sometimes the mental aspect of living with diabetes can be harder than the physical. That’s why having the support of family, friends and an organization like JDRF is so critical.” His brother, Darren, also has T1D.

He also enjoys Xbox, reading and Legos. He participates in the Walk to Cure Diabetes with his family as “DB’s Crusaders” and is involved with the UCSF Symposium and MUG Root Beer Float Day with the Oakland A’s. Darren says, “I’ve had diabetes since I can remember. How nice would it be if I never had to think about that again? Will I ever know what that is like, not to worry or get my fingers pricked?” His brother, Andrew, also has T1D.
