In 2014 Sierra Sanderson won the title of Miss Idaho after she appeared on stage during the bathing suit portion of the competition in a bikini with her pump fully visible. In a Facebook post she has asked other people to share images of themselves with pumps visible as part of the hashtag campaign #showmeyourpump. Sierra says 'My message to everyone, diabetic or not, is that we all have something that doesn't "measure up" to the beauty standards set by the media -- and that is okay!'
Sanderson's post maintained the social media campaign 'is not limited to just girls, or to people with pumps -- I want to see YOU and whatever your daily battle with diabetes looks like.' Diabetes Depot would like to revive this campaign during November as part of Diabetes Awareness Month in Canada. Please send us your picture and we would be happy to post it here.
Please send us your picture and we'll share it on our homepage and Facebook page. All submissions will be entered into a draw for 3 DiabetesDepot.ca gift certificates valued $25.00 each.
By sharing your story and participating in this research study, you will be contributing to the understanding of type 1 diabetes and the factors that lead to a successful life. The questionnaire will allow Diabetes Longevity to learn more about you, your lifestyle, and how you have managed your diabetes over the years. The questionnaire will ask you about your diabetes history, other health conditions, medications, recent bloodwork and eye test results, medical conditions in your family, diet and exercise, and quality of life.
