Diabetes Blog Week - Diabetes Hero
This Diabetes Blog Week has been fun. I hope you have had fun reading the posts, not only by me, but by everyone involved in it. I learned a few things!
The last topic for the week is about who my Diabetes Hero is. My hero is you, me, and millions of others around the world who contribute donations to their local diabetes related organizations. Without the help of all of us, many advancements and discoveries would not have happened, and many of us may not even be here today. Fundraising and donations do not only occur in November (National Diabetes Month in many countries) but throughout the year, and in different forms.
Whether it be through donating used clothes and household goods (through the ClothesLine program in Canada), volunteering your time, fundraising with the Diabetes Walk, or donating money, you should all stand up and take a bow. While I am sure we far from a cure, we can certainly take solace in the fact that everything we do brings us one step closer.
