My Life With Diabetes

Aware

I read that the national Breast Cancer awareness campaign reduced the incidence of  breast cancer by 7%. 7%. Translated to diabetes, in whole numbers, we would reduce the people with diabetes by 1.8 million. Apply the same reduction to the cost diabetes has on our society in dollars, we would save 175 million dollars. We all need and want research for a cure but in the meantime we need to do everything possible to reduce the toll diabetes takes on our culture every single day. Awareness campaigns work. Why is there no national face, image, identity for diabetes?
