As most of you know, MJ2 and the Diabetic Angels are HUGE supporters of the Diabetes Community and Research, and like most people in the DOC, we too are wearing blue, not because it’s our favorite color, but because it’s a state of mind. With that said, The Diabetic Angels’ website has shut down in protest! After years and years, there is still NO CURE for diabetes! 25.8 million people STILL have diabetes. We’ve shut down the site on World Diabetes Day to protest on behalf of all diabetics, the fact that there is NO CURE.
While we’re grateful to Dr. Banting, researchers, and the entire diabetic community for their tireless effort, governments and people around the world must unite to cure this devastating global disease. Still don’t have a cure, still need insulin to survive, still need to prick our fingers, still have complications. “Still Have Diabetes” must become “Used To Have Diabetes!”
