Famille Lacasse Défi Scotia 2022
Being a type 1 diabetic since the age of 7, I live with this autoimmune disease every day. Some, like me at the time, may see such a diagnosis as a burden. However today, after so many years, I consider it a discovery. This diagnosis led me to meet the people at FRED, without whom my life would be very different today. I grew up with FRED’s support, both for me and for my parents. The people at FRED gave me confidence, supported me in my personal development and gave me opportunities that I never imagined possible. Today, it’s my turn to give back to young people who go through the same journey as me. »
