Sue Millikan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1983 at the age of 36. At the time of her diagnosis, Sue and her family had just faced the loss of Sue’s sister, Ellen, to cystic fibrosis. Sue remembers being worried about how her family would react to having another family member diagnosed with a chronic disease. At the time, there was not a lot known about diabetes, and the treatments and tools for type 1 diabetes were not as advanced as they are today.
