Today kicks off the start of National Diabetes Awareness Month.
And yes, the irony of the day after Halloween is fully on my mind.
The importance of having a month that is fully dedicated to our cause of improving treatments for T1d AND developing a cure is critical.
This is the month where we, together as a community of people living with T1d and people who are not diagnosed but love us, come together in one loud voice to say, 'ENOUGH! WE WANT TO END THIS THING! #NOT1D !" and make a change.
What can you do? Talk. Share. Point a spotlight at the reasons why this is important to your family.
This is a big year for us. Treatments that we need are waiting for FDA approval. The work that JDRF has done with cell transplants are incredible and potentially, the most promising that we have ever seen for a cure.
Imagine that! Your voice can help to make it happen.
And when it does, I will be the first one to say thank you.
Let's do it!
