Another month has come and gone — and in the spirit of this past weekend's Thanksgiving holiday, we are thankful to be part of such an amazing blogging community. Here's a small sampling of noteworthy posts from bloggers we're thankful to know:
November was of course National Diabetes Awareness Month and there was a lot of awareness-raising going on in the DOC. Gina hosted the 7th annual DBlog Day, Lee Ann organized the World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange, and Cherise encouraged everyone to rock the blue with Blue Fridays!
We also love Lee Ann's list of 5 things that changed her life as a PWD. No. 5 is especially awwww-worthy.
An ode to the pancreas? This is just about the funniest video we have seen in a long time! Thanks to Cara Richardson for sharing it!
Kerri Sparling and the folks at CWD are crowd-sourcing to find out what kind of topics adults with diabetes want to see at next year's CWD Friends for Life conference. Go add your 2 cents, please.
Scott Strange writes a passionate critique of the Juvenile Diabetes Cure Alliance and shares his musings on what a "cure" means to him.
Victoria Cumbow reflects on the JDRF New York Times ad, stating that 1 in 20 people will die from hypoglycemia. Whether you believe that's an accurate number or not, the fact is: any person dying from diabetes is one too many.
Congratulations to Diabetes Daily blogger Caroline Parker and her husband on their new addition to their family!
Finally, Amy and I are flying to Utah today for some meetings and our parent company's holiday party, so we thought Mike Hoskin's CGM-inspired ski slopes were quite timely. Thanks, Mike!
