What is a diabetes family? It’s people with diabetes of course but it’s more than that. It’s the people that help people with diabetes live with diabetes. It’s the mums and dads, the sisters and brothers, the cousins and friends, health professionals and researchers.
The thing is diabetes doesn’t take holidays. So having people on your side is important.
This World Diabetes Day let’s show Australia how big the diabetes family is. Share a picture or a video. Write a short post explaining who your diabetes family is and how they help you. Remember to tag us and your diabetes family. Use the hashtag #mydiabetesfamily and you can go into the draw to win a $400 voucher for a weekend away with your diabetes family at a Mantra hotel.
We are all in it together.
