Happy World Diabetes Day!

Dr. Frederick Banting
11/14/1891 - 2/21/41
Did you know that today is World Diabetes Day? Why today? November 14th was chosen in honor of Dr. Frederick Banting's birthday. Dr. Banting discovered insulin in 1922. The discovery of insulin remains one of the most incredible medical breakthroughs of all time. Prior to insulin, a diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes was a death sentence. Please do not be mistaken...insulin is not a cure, but without insulin, my son will die.

 Thank you, Dr Banting and HAPPY WORLD DIABETES DAY!

In honor of World Diabetes Day, my friend Hallie over at The Princess and the Pump is doing and AWESOME giveaway.  Head over there to enter!
