Today is a special day!

Today is March 1st.
This is the day you get to hope... Today, don't hope the boy next to you likes you, don't hope you get an A on the test, don't hope you win the lottery.... Today, March 1st, HOPE that they, (anyone), finds a cure for diabetes. It affects too many people. It knows no boundaries. I'm selfish, I know too many who have it and I HOPE they get a cure in this lifetime!!!! Write it on your hand, spread the word!!!! Take your picture of your hand and post it, send it to me at damseldesigns08 @ gmail . com (take out spaces), PM me here, post on facebook and tag me (Damsel Designs), however you want just do it!!
Here is why I have HOPE that one day there will be a cure.
Rachel was diagnosed at 18 months old. At 14 she has just celebrated 12 years with this disease. And to celebrate you can pick up my diabetes awareness kit for today only.

Thanks for this kit! I was diagnosed a few years ago myself and have had my ups and downs with it. Here's hoping for a cure!

Poor, baby. My husband has type 2 and I so appreciate your time and effort to create this wonderful kit. I'm hoping with you!

Thanks for this wonderful kit! You're right - we should all hope there comes a cure - SOON! My granddaughter was diagnosed almost two years ago. I hope your daughter continues to do well!

Thank you for this lovely gift! I came for the blog train, and found a different common interest. My daughter was diagnosed at 15 with type 1. Six years later, she still struggles with Diabetes while raising her own baby daughter. Wishing your girl blood sugars in range day and night, and an excellent A1C!

i am so glad I saw this while looking for the blog train post... I have had to test my blood sugars 4 times/day in my pregnancy and i'm already sick of it. I can't imagine years and years of it... AND, i'm only being watched for, not diagnosed with gestational diabetes, so no insulin (yet). Here's to hope!!

Thanks so much for sharing. My stepson was diagnosed with diabetes at 4 (and is now 23), a family friend was diagnosed early in life and now is one of the most fit and active 68 year olds I know. Sadly, my father had diabetes and passed away from complications in 1996. I had gestational diabetes (4 shots a day) and know first had how it is. Praying for you all.

Hope is a wonderful thing, without it is despair. I am a type II diabetic and able to control it with diet alone still. So many possible outcomes are still ahead of me though. Best wishes to your beautiful daughter.

Thanks for this great kit. I was just diagnosed with this disease 4 months ago and my husband was diagnosed 5 years ago. It seems that more and more people I meet have been diagnosed. It isn't a fun thing to have to watch everything that you put into your body so very carefully and watch your numbers go up too high and try to figure out what to do to get them down again. I am home bound with other illnesses so cannot even exercise to get the #'s down and it is scary. Thanks for this. I was not aware of this special date but I am now! And I won't forget it!! Unfortunately I found this 5 days later but thank you for making me aware! Best wishes and prayers for your family as you fight this disease as well. (I feel that it completely affects the whole family not just the one person who is diagnosed - that's my way of looking at it).
