I am Calvin Ferguson, 29 years-old and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 2 years and 3 months ago. I first heard about TDFC in 2018, but I started getting involved in early 2019.
Played at a decent amateur level but biggest experiences involved playing at Anfield, Old Trafford & the Etihad.
I am extremely proud and excited to represent UK in Kiev…can’t wait to belt out our national anthem!
TDFC has allowed me to be around people with the same condition…as I am quite newly diagnosed I’ve not met many others who are type 1 yet but TDFC makes you feel like a part of a huge support network and community. Diabetes should not stop you doing or achieving anything – once you have it controlled, you can live your life as if you don’t have the condition, prioritising it is very important, the rest then follows and your body will definitely thank you for it!
