There was a comment that was made on the 1st episode suggesting that type 1 diabetes was caused by an unhealthy lifestyle, which we all know is untrue.
A fellow Canadian T1 mama posted a comment on her facebook page and that was it, I entered letter writing mode. After one live chat comment, one discussion board comment (a long letter) on Village on a Diet facebook page, a blog post and one letter written to CBC plus the countless other letters, phone calls and comments from fellow T1's and families, CBC has stepped up!
with this: The Facts on Diabetes
HERE is a link to my earlier "bitching blog post" about the show and my concerns.
and THIS is my THANK YOU BLOG POST
Thank you Village on a Diet CBC for reading all of our comments and concerns
Thank you Village on a Diet CBC for understanding all of our comments and concerns
Thank you Village on a Diet CBC for doing something positive about all of our comments and concerns
and THANK YOU Village on a Diet CBC for giving this one T1 mama belief that people who do not live this type 1 life WILL understand and WILL help educate. You have given me a renewed sense of energy and hope to keep on advocating for my daughter and for all type 1's.
