My 22nd Diabetes Anniversary with My Dad, Peter Bongiorno

November 1, 2022

On November 1st, 2000, 22 years ago today, I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. To help me reflect and celebrate my diaversary, I’ve brought on a very special guest, my dad, Peter Bongiorno. 

I’m really excited for you all to meet my dad because we're extremely close and I admire him for so many reasons. (I think you’ll see why when you listen to his episode…)

My dad is a personal injury and criminal defense attorney by career, as well as a motivational speaker, actor, writer, and director.  

In this conversation, we talk about… 

  • What my family experienced after my T1D diagnosis
  • The different role he played in my life with diabetes vs. the role my mom played
  • How he shaped my mindset with not only diabetes, but life in general
  • Things he wishes he would have said if he could go back in time
  • … and so much more!
