World Diabetes Day 2012

November 14th.  Dr. Frederick Banting's birthday.  His birthday is the day we take a moment to recognize an invisible disease.  He and his comrade, Dr. Charles Best, found insulin and figured out what it was good for.

For this, good sirs, I am grateful.

But be reminded, insulin is not a cure, it is a treatment.  This month is dedicated to bringing diabetes out into the open, dusting off the cobwebs of misinformation and myths to reveal the truth.

No one deserves this.

It's not just about "not eating sugar" or losing weight.

It is a complex disease that affects every part of daily life and the effects are felt in innumerable ways.

We hope for a cure.

Day. 14. #today
