Friday, November 14 is World Diabetes Day. Join the circle!
Many of you know that my grandson, Nolan, has juvenile diabetes and was diagnosed almost one year ago at the tender age of 16 months. So this cause is near and dear to my heart. No child should have to endure the daily injections, finger and toe pricks, dietary restrictions, etc. that diabetes control demands, not to mention the possible health complications that can accompany it, but Nolan takes it all in stride. He is, without question, my hero.
Show your support on November 14 — join the circle. World Diabetes Day is represented by a blue circle logo. The blue circle, noted for its symbolism of positivity, life and health, is the global symbol of diabetes and signifies the unity of the global diabetes community in response to the diabetes pandemic.
And in a practical vein, consider purchasing JDRF cards this holiday season; make a donation; educate yourself about juvenile diabetes. Or simply wear blue to show your support next Friday, November 14.
