Fraser was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes aged 3 1/2 years. On diagnosis the care he received was awful but he never once complained. with his diagnosis his mum trained to be a diabetes specialist nurse - it had to be better than that! Fraser was the first child under the age of 12 to use an insulin pump at the age of 4, he is now 12 and a 'diabetes buddy' for children newly diagnosed with this condition. He visits children and their families to let them see, life goes on, just a little different to before. He always sees the positive side of having diabetes and talks to children at schools, helps at diabetes camps to show diabetes does not have to stop you being the best you can be. Fraser is an active fundraiser for the JDRF raising over GBP1,000 last year. Even with severe dyslexia he tries his best to be independent and with the support of his family (mum also has type 1 diabetes) life is mostly good for Fraser. He plays football and golf, he is always active and encourages his friends with and without diabetes to keep active - he knows the difference between type 1 and type 2 and promotes healthy eating and lifestyle changes as well as his insulin injections for good control. Choose Fraser to carry the torch, his sunshine smile, caring and loving personality shines through, the Olympic torch will blaze in his hands. This wonderful boy is a glass half full type of guy and will go far in life, he's come so far already.
