Nadia was diagnosed with T1D at three years old and the family has been committed to raising awareness and funding for research ever since. Their passion is also driven by other close family members and friends who have been impacted by the disease.

The episode also features a special appearance by WNBA player and JDRF Ambassador Lauren Cox. Diagnosed at seven years old, Lauren is an advocate for the diabetes community and an inspiration to Nadia and other youth living with T1D.
