Club Meeting

9:00am Social gathering, 9:45am Club Meeting

We are excited to welcome Stefany Shaheen who will be talking to the HWC about the challenges of raising a child with Type 1 Diabetes as related in her New York Times best- selling book, “Elle & Coach: Diabetes, the Fight for My Daughter’s Life, and the Dog Who Changed Everything”.

Stefany, a self-confessed Type A personality, thought she had everything in life under control – a career, 4 children and a happy life in Portsmouth, NH. But, sometimes life throws us a curve ball!

Through Stefany’s real life story, we will learn how life-changing and stressful it is to be responsible for a child with a chronic, potentially life-threatening, illness who needs constant monitoring. We will learn about Type 1 Diabetes and gain an appreciation for the daily struggles people with this, currently incurable, illness face. We will also learn about the comfort a trained medic-alert dog can bring.

Being raised by two advocates (her Mum is a US Senator and her Dad was a judge and lawyer), Stefany learned this skill growing up and she and Elle are now dedicated to improving life for people living with diabetes, advocating for medical research and advancements.

We would like to encourage Members, potential Members and any woman aged 18 or over with an interest in this topic to attend what we believe will be a very enlightening and heartwarming presentation.
