World Diabetes Day
Today is World Diabetes Day. A day to advocate and educate and remember how much diabetes affects ALL of us. The focus the past two years has been on diabetes in children. Type 1 diabetes in pre-schoolers is growing at a rate of 5% per year!! Scary!! Yes, J.J. is part of that statistic.
As I thought about what I could do on this day to advocate for all people with diabetes but especially my son, I didn't think of anything "special". I'm trying to educate the people around me all the time. Anyone that is interested, and even those that aren't, I try to share what I know. I think we all should do this. Use our own sphere of influence to spread correct diabetes information.
So....nothing real creative from me on this day. But I found something creative, funny, and just plain cool. Enjoy....
