Diabetes Awareness Month Photo-a-Day 5 – Advocate

There are so many ways to be an advocate for something. It’s not hard, I promise! Half of these you can do without even trying.

  • Talk to your friends and family about it.
  • Participate in events around it.
  • Educate those who ask you about it.
  • Fund-raise and donate to causes that support it in some way.
  • Write a blog and communicate with others on the internet about it.
  • Meetup with others who have experience with it, and/or create a local group that can support each other in person.

I like to do all of these things, and my “it” just happens to be diabetes. (I am also a new member of Diabetes Advocates, yay!)

Gooooo Rowdies!

Part of my JDRF walk team from last weekend, all of us T1 (except for my daughter) and just some pretty all-around great girls!
