You're Beautiful.

Yesterday, my friend Wendy shared something about her young daughter on Facebook.


And from yesterday until a few minutes ago, Sara, Jess, and I aggregated some of those affirmations... and now we're sharing them.

I WEAR GLASSES AND A PUMP AND MY FACE
ONLY GETS STUCK LIKE THIS SOMETIMES

For Wendy's daughter (who was - coincidentally? - diagnosed seven years ago TODAY), and anyone else who has to wear a lot of hardware: you can do this, and you can ROCK IT.

  2. I've been wearing glasses now for 23 years, and I was diagnosed as T1D 7 months ago. Now I wear a pump!! I'm 34 years old. This video had me in tears...I just imagined that MY name was Sugar as I was watching. Thanks so much for making this for all young kids and the not so young kids that need words of encouragement. I CAN do this! And so can Sugar, glasses and all ;)

  10. I LOVE THIS! Not that I'm biased or anything...being a pumper and an eyeglass/contacts wearer ;) The DOC is a beautifully powerful group and kudos to all that participated in this amazing gesture!

  13. Hi Kim, it's your Mom. Don't know the age of Wendy's daughter, but they should know that sometimes you only need glasses for a few years and the eyes self-correct to not needing them for many years. This happened to me once in grade school and once in my mid 20's. But after about age 40, well, different story.

  19. this whole thing went down when L and i were in chicago and when the original call went out, she said, "oh i wish we were home cos then i could take a pic of me and my pump and those fake glasses i have!" :)

    anyway, this was amazing to watch as it came together and the waves of love and positivity that radiated out from it. big love to you and everyone involved. <333
