Back to Kids' Voices Bretton Tyler

Hi there. My name is Bretton Tyler and I am 5 years old. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes back in 1996, when I was only 2. In September of 2000, with the help of family and friends and a very generous Service Group in my town, I finally got to start using an Insulin Pump! I have a Minimed 508 and I am doing very well!

I love pumping and would NEVER go back to shots again. I can do so much more and I feel so much better. If you would like to read the story on my journey to pumping. please visit my family's webpage at and be sure to sign our guestbook! My Mom answers all our emails so write me too!

Our email address is
