There’s a hero in the fourth grader who juggles spelling tests and gym class with counting carbs and taking insulin shots. There’s a hero in the businessman who prepares his mother’s meals and sets out her diabetes medicine each day before leaving for work. There’s a hero in the mom who takes her insulin shot on the way to pick up her daughter from ballet or during her son’s school play. Whether you’re living with diabetes, caring for someone who is, or you’re fighting to stop it, there’s a hero in you.
This November for American Diabetes Month®, the American Diabetes Association® invites you to put on your cape and take a stand at diabetes.org/thisisdiabetes.
