Ms Wells is starting her own support group for people who are seeking coping methods and information on the condition.

A meeting will be held at the Waikiki and Community Family Centre on Saturday, August 17, from 2.30pm.

The meeting will determine how many people are interested and what kind of information and workshops would be valuable.

Ms Wells’ daughter, Carys, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in June.

‘We were shell-shocked when we were told the news and our world turned upside down,’ she said.

‘I want to start a group where everyone can come together and learn from each other.’

If you are interested in the group or would like further information, contact Claudia Wells on 0422 889 970 or email |diabet1ksrockingham@gmail.|com
