Anyone who knows me knows that I’m more interested in battling diabetes, and NOT battling each other. It’s why on many occasions I’m more than happy to share something merely because……well…..it’s cool; no matter who the person, organization, and/or entity is who came up with the idea. If it’s cool…….share it.
Today, my wonderful and talented colleagues at the DRI(F) have come up with a Superhero idea. It has always been my contention that as wonderful as so many celebs are in the diabetes world…..they are not the only heroes. So are the kids who live their lives to the fullest and doing it with T1D and doing it every day right in our homes, hometowns, and schools.
A #T1DSuperhero might not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but those with type 1 diabetes take on heroic actions every single day to conquer the challenges of living with the disease. On Friday, April 28, join the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation in honoring all the T1D superheroes–those who live with type 1 diabetes and the families, friends, and caregivers who support them.
Help raise awareness for T1D and the need to find a cure by changing your profile picture on social media to this special #T1DSuperhero graphic.

Also get a sneak peek at our new public service announcement, featuring our very own T1D superheroes–our DRI scientists who are working to find a cure. You can be a #T1DSuperhero, too! There is also a really cool superhero video on the page as well. So if you have, or have a loved one with diabetes, change your FB page for tomorrow, Friday, Superheroes Day.
