Ice cream you scream we all scream for ice cream!!!

So tomorrow is the big day. The day when thousands of people with diabetes, and those who love and support them, will undertake a monumental task.

We will.....
Eat a bowl of ice creamy goodness!!! And do you know why?

Because we CAN! Because diabetes does NOT mean you have to stop enjoying life, or live on a diet.

In this video, Sarah expresses how she manages to deal with diabetes while still enjoying the foods she loves. And does it while wearing a startlingly appropriate shirt, I might add...

In the end, it's not about the ice cream. It's about the horrible misconceptions about diabetes that hurt my child and so many other children and adults with diabetes. It's about people assuming they can't have something, without even asking. It's about the time Sarah's school had a party, and they were short one cupcake - because they "knew" the diabetic kid couldn't have one. It's about CHANGING those misconceptions.

So I'd urge those of you who haven't already, check your facebook events and just click "attend". We appreciate your support. And tomorrow night, we'll be here:
