Wonderful Outrage

Ok, so I know the title is kinda random, but work with me here...

The first thing I want to tell you is that today, I have the honor of guest posting over at Sara's blog, Moments of Wonderful.  So check it out!

Sara and I met at Friends For Life, and I absolutely ADORE her!  We're like long-lost sisters or something--I think we're starting to scare some people...

While you're there, be sure to check out some of Sara's posts because she is AMAZING!


Ok, on an unrelated note, you need to stop what you're doing RIGHT NOW and go listen to DSMA Live from last night.  The guest was Professor Jean Claude Mbanya, President of the International Diabetes Federation.

If maybe you're working and can't listen right now, I guess that's ok. ;)

But PLEASE do take the time to listen!  He and the IDF are doing some incredible things, and they need our help!

I'm sick, so this post is going to be short and sweet, but IDF has several things going you should check out:

Life For A Child
I Agree
O Is For Outrage

Jean Claude spent some time on the show talking about how important it is for EVERYONE to get involved.  Even one person makes a difference.

So please go take a look.  And tell everyone you know.  No child should have to die because they don't have access to insulin.  Families should not have to starve in order to try to afford insulin for a child with diabetes.  No parent should ever have to feel relieved that their child with diabetes has died because it means the family can eat again.

Please see these posts from Kerri, George, and Kelly for more info.

Show your Diabetes Outrage!
