I admire people who can get up in front of a crowd and stir up the troops. Create a rally to create change. My good friend Michelle is that type of person. She is a strong Italian woman who is willing to put herself out there every day, for the good of her Type 1 son Gino and other diabetic children. Rocco and I have been the beneficiaries of a couple of her rallies. She fights for the good of the children both in our school district and statewide. She has spoken at conferences and at meetings of school staff members responsible for the care of children with diabetes. She is the person to call if you are having trouble in your school,because she is not afraid. She is not afraid to go after school districts or legislatures. The world needs more people like Michelle. I, for one, want to thank her for her help and for the havoc she creates when children with diabetes are being treated incorrectly. I just hope she takes herself all the way to Capitol Hill one day, to get more diabetes awareness out there. She is the kind of strong force that every worthy cause needs.
Thanks Michelle and the many other people out there who are willing to get their hands dirty. We applaud you!
If you know of someone in your community who you would like to thank for their work with diabetes, please feel free to mention them here in the comments section and then share the post on Facebook, Twitter or through your email! They need some love today!
