We are the Griffin Family. We love to travel and find new adventures. We have been on over 10 cruises as a family and have seen too many countries to count. Our adventure with Type 1 Diabetes began in March 2006 when our then two-year-old daughter was diagnosed at Children’s Hospital in Denver and we began treatment at the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes. Nothing can prepare a family for Type 1 Diabetes, but the doctors, nurses and staff at the Barbara Davis Center made it a lot easier to handle.

We have come a long way since those days and nights of shots, finger pokes and strict carb rules. We were among the first to get the Omnipod pumping system and again to receive the Dexcom as a child. Our daughter participated in multiple research studies for both systems, helping the doctors at the Barbara Davis Center research new and improved treatment methods. We have received support from others and been support for others. Until you live with this every day it’s hard to fully understand what it means to have Type 1 Diabetes in your life.

We are partnering with The Children’s Diabetes Foundation to put on this great adventure. The Children’s Diabetes Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated solely to the support of research in diabetes and to provide the best possible clinical and educational programs for people with the disease. The Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes provides a clinical service for children, adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes and the Center supports substantial clinical and basic science research programs to prevent and ultimately cure this chronic life-threatening disease.

Along the way we have met so many great people through the Children’s Diabetes Foundation. For several years we have volunteered and attended the Children’s Diabetes Foundation’s fundraising events, including the Carousel Ball and Spring Fashion Luncheons. Our daughter has gotten to meet so many amazing people and shared her story to help them understand a little bit about why the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and the Barbara Davis Center are so important.

That’s why we started this cruise. To join up with other families for support, comfort, celebration and just plain family fun. It’s like diabetes camp and a family vacation in one! Plus, for every cabin purchased, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines / Cruise Planners will donate to the Children’s Diabetes Foundation to further fund the exciting care and research happening at the Barbara Davis Center.

Join us in June 2023, for a whole new kind of adventure.
