Wishlist funds various initiatives aimed at supporting young people with juvenile diabetes.
As part of Wishlist's support of juvenile diabetes programs on the Coast, designated internet-ready laptops were funded through Wishlist for the Sunshine Coast Diabetes Centre waiting room.
These give visiting young people the chance to access a Type 1 Diabetes Network offering online peer support.
Wishlist also funds ongoing twice-yearly events for adolescents and young people with Type 1 diabetes.
These events give local young people with the disease the opportunity for peer networking and telling their stories along with the chance to meet famous guest speakers with Type 1 Diabetes who share their experiences.
Doctors also have the opportunity to inform the group about latest research and advances in technology.
Wishlist funds the District's annual diabetes camps which provide invaluable support to local kids living with the disease.
Camp Diabetes is all about having "fun, fun, fun" while making a real difference to children and adolescents living with Type 1 Diabetes.
