Give Diabetes the . . . paw??

November 1st marks the first day of National Diabetes Awareness Month.  This year, JDRF has also marked today as the first annual T1Day.  The aim of T1Day is to spread awareness about Type 1 diabetes and educate people about it.  As part of this campaign, JDRF sent me a foam diabetes finger, so I could “give type 1 the finger”.

Yes, I will admit that the have been days when I’ve wanted to give diabetes the finger.  And I’m not talking about my pointer-finger either . . . .

In a show of solidarity and support for the DOC, K.C. wants to give diabetes the finger too.  Or, I suppose, she wants to give diabetes the paw??

Are you celebrating T1Day?  How will you help spread diabetes awareness throughout the month?

  2. I love giving diabetes the finger! In my own way I do this every day by wearing my "hope" ring on my middle finger. ;)
