November is Diabetes Awareness Month! I am pleased to present you with D-Quote, a Diabetes Light initiative that gives voice to our community and helps provide awareness for this challenging invisible condition. Thank you for reading. I encourage you to pass these meaningful quotes and stories along to increase our advocacy and outreach efforts. All advocacy moves us closer to a cure. Thanks for your help! 🙂
**A special thanks to our community members for taking the time to write and bravely share their stories and experiences to provide diabetes awareness.
“Diabetes is something I do, something I care for, not who I am. I am a woman who loves, plays, hurts and struggles. Has successes and failures, good days and bad days. I am strong and healthy, sensitive and emotional yet capable and willing. I will not be defined nor limited by a diagnosis. I am so much more both because and in-spite of diabetes.”
