Lorraine – “This is Caleb…”
Lorraine is the mother of 3 children, a wife and a CPA. Her middle child Caleb was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 3 in January 2007. Caleb began using the OmniPod insulin pump in April 2007 and the DexCom Seven Plus CGM in September 2009. Having turned to the internet for support herself, Lorraine decided to start the blog “This is Caleb…” to share her experiences so that others do not feel so isolated. Visit Lorraine’s Blog: “This is Caleb…”.
