FINE Friends is a no-cost community based program spearheaded by volunteer Jake Fine, now 14 a type 1 diabetic diagnosed at 7 ½ years old. The program connects children newly diagnosed with type 1diabetes with families already living with type 1 to offer companionship, positive support and advice. The newly diagnosed child is matched with a child who doesn't let diabetes stand in the way of a happy childhood! In turn, the program hopes to inspire in the experienced child a sense of pride and accomplishment in helping a newly diagnosed child.
