Nancy Crowe

My youngest son developed type 1 at age eight. Frightened and desperate to learn, I discovered TCOYD. Over the past 15 years TCOYD has provided me with a variety of tools to help our son manage his diabetes. I donate because the education from TCOYD positively impacts people with diabetes & their families.

David & Barbara Groce

We support TCOYD because its emphasis is on educating those of us who have diabetes. The information we learn through TCOYD allows us to be aware of the latest diabetes treatments and developments, some of which aren’t widely known yet. Barbara is a type 1 and David is a type 2.


Lynn Senecal

TCOYD has engaged more individuals with diabetes than I ever could as a Certified Diabetes Educator. I hope more individuals will feel compelled to donate in order to maintain the phenomenal work that TCOYD is accomplishing.
