Meet our Superstars!

Hey Health Freaks, we’re sure you’ve seen this gorgeous pair around our cafes recently, and we’d like to officially introduce them!

ETHAN 

8 year old Sports Star, Ray of Sunshine, Laughing Machine, Giver of Adorable Smiles

Ethan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was only 2 years old, and wears an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor (GCM) 24h/7 to stay safe.

Ethan dreams of a happy, healthy future where he can be a professional soccer player for Perth Glory or Barcelona. He loves being outdoors, bike riding and playing with his friends.

 

BEC JOHNSON

CEO of the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre, Confidence and Awareness Builder

Diagnosed in 2001, Bec’s mission is to build a confident, connected and inspired type 1 community in WA. She aims to help kids like Ethan achieve his dreams and thrive with type 1.

Alongside her work at the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre, Bec is an inspiration to people impacted by type 1 diabetes, and has swum solo across the 20-kilometre Rottnest Channel, sailed across the Atlantic, and become a SCUBA dive guide.

You go girl!
