Region Kronoberg, Sweden

Elin Cederbrant, 20 year old patient with type 1 diabetes since 2010 and founder of the charity organization Together Against Diabetes1. Elin works full time creating awareness about type 1 diabetes​, both​ together with the hospitals and within her own charity organization. She is one of few ”patient-entrepreneurs” in Sweden taking lesson from her own experiences in order to make something positive for others diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Today one of her main project is to hand out a special designed backpack without cost to every child (0-18) that gets diagnosed with T1D in Sweden. The backpack is an original by Elin and is designed with one pocket for everything that you might need for a day with T1D. When handed out it is full of T1D information but also a lot of encouraging words telling that things will get easier.
