Finlay has lived with type -1 diabetes since he was three-years-old.
The series of events that led up to his diagnosis was a scary time for his family. In a matter of weeks, they witnessed their little boy go from a healthy happy kid, to a child that was potentially fighting for his life.
Finlay is a happy boy who is filled with joy and cheek, his greatest love is football – he is incredibly passionate about it and doesn’t let type-one hold him back. When not in football mode he spends time with his mates and dog or hanging with family including his brother Jack and sister Lily.
Currently there is no cure for type-1 diabetes. Cure Kids has funded research by Cure Kids’ first Professorial Chair of Child Health and board member, Professor Bob Elliott, to try to prevent type-1 diabetes as well as find a cure via transplantation of new insulin producing cells. This has been a world leader.
