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.

I don’t know what kind of person I would be without my diabetes because that’s really a life I haven’t lived.  But I do know what kind of person living with diabetes has made me: I am strong, I am hopeful, I am determined and I am resilient. I have diabetes. Diabetes does not have me!”
