      Great job!!! Tomorrow, 11-14-17, is the day that people are asked to wear blue to bring awareness to Diabetes. I will be wearing my blue!!! I am a diabetic and I take care of my mother who has dementia and diabetes. In recent studies there has been a link discovered between Alzheimer and Diabetes. It is very important to catch and care for Diabetes as early as you can!
