As you all know my youngest sister Ana has type 1 diabetes (got it the same year I did).  She has been an artist since I’ve known her (and I’ve known her since she was born).  Her personality seems to fit the stereotype for an artist (except she’s really good at math).  She is extremely kind, non-judgmental, very “live and let live”, quiet and observant, and has a wonderful eclectic style.  Her bedroom looks like art, fashion, quotes, and a rainbow all blew up in it.  Every time I go in there my face probably resembles a child’s at Disney World.

She was interviewed for Sanofi’s new diabetes website, thedx.com.  The article is about how people with diabetes, Ana being one of them, are using art to express their emotions and reach out to others.  It’s a great post and we’d be honored if you read it :)

By the way, Diabetes Art Day is fast approaching.  Look out for the upcoming post on how you can participate and support this creative initiative!
