THANK YOU VERY MUCH GMA
I have not seen it yet BUT I hope to link it up as soon as I find it.
THIS was truly an amazing thing to experience and to be a part of. Also being plugged into T1 families in Canada and the U.S. it is very interesting to see the dynamics, the differences, the similarity and connections that we ALL share within our community.
Together I truly believe that we can make a huge difference bringing awareness and educating the general public about type 1 diabetes.
First order of business, lets start communicating clearly and effectively and use the correct and full term of this disease... type 1 diabetes. Lets drop the root of the cause of both misspeaks...." Juvenile" Diabetes.
*** After I posted this I pondered over my comment. Since Cara's diagnoses I have NEVER even used the term Juvenile Diabetes but I know of a lot of people who have, is dropping the "Juvenile" even possible? With the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) one of the leading supporters of trying to find a cure for type 1 diabetes still using an out dated term that is absolutely causing a bit of confusion in the general public is this change even possible. Definitely something to think about!!
