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.
“It’s Diabetes awareness month. In just over 3 years AJ has tested his blood more than 7,000 times. He has spent hours in the nurses office instead of the classroom. He jabs a needle in his stomach every 3 days so he can be infused with insulin and another one that helps us watch his numbers throughout the day. He weighs his food and has decided some foods are just not worth the frustrating numbers they cause. He is 11 years old and must think about food and carbs and insulin throughout the day just to see tomorrow. Yet, he’s a regular kid with regular likes and dislikes. He is my Rock Star.”
