About Me

My name is Hannah Foreman-Wenneker and I know how much Diabetes Type 1 sucks. Most days I wish I didn’t know. 18 months after Noah’s diagnosis, I found my voice again and I am ready to share our experiences with you in the hope it raises awareness of DT1 and maybe helps you personally in some way.

I was born and raised in England and met my husband Kasper while living in The Netherlands. I have now been in Amsterdam for over 15 years and together with Kasper we are raising two awesome kids, Esmé and Noah.

Every day Kasper and I wish we could trade places with our son who is the real sufferer here. The day they find a cure will be the day when all parents of diabetic kids stand up together, dry their tears and dance with joy and relief. 

I hope I can put my dancing shoes on someday soon…

  1. Hi
    I received your blog through a friend and just want to share i highly appreciate your words. As you mention, if we could we would take it from our son. Our son was diagnosed 5th of januari 2015. As we speak he is on a 5 Day sporttrip with school. An incredible big step for him…. And surely also for teachers and us 😉 He is now 7.

  2. Hi. I appreciate you connecting to me on my blog – it must have been because I have mentioned a time or two that I’m t1d. I’ve had it for almost my entire life; although it looks like your son might have been diagnosed much earlier than I was – I was 8 years old and am now 44.
    It’s refreshing to see people take this as a serious matter, because if I’m honest with myself, I have not taken good care of myself the past few years. Maybe it’s time to change that…

    Anyways, I look forward to following your blog and hope there is some mutual support! 🙂
