Eric Paslay connected with fans on a new level last Friday, when he invited kids struggling with Type 1 diabetes to hang with him backstage in Boston.
People reports that Paslay, who also has Type 1 diabetes, spent time with the kids, their parents and a few caregivers from the Joslin Diabetes Center ahead of his show and discussed his own problems since being diagnosed at age 10.
“We are truly blown away by Eric’s kindness,” Dr. Michelle Katz of Joslin said.
“His willingness to spend one-on-one time with our young patients and really bond with them tonight about his own experiences with type 1 diabetes meant so much to them.”
In addition to taking selfies with the fans, Paslay compared glucose numbers with one patient who had the same Dexcom glucose monitor as him.
