Through times of trial and tragedy, when the going gets tough, heroes emerge. For those of us on the Eastern Seaboard, these heroes have come in the face of the first responders, firemen and policemen, community leaders, and everyday people who are lending a hand, donating items, and helping to rebuild our hurricane ravaged towns.
Many of these heroes, when thanked, will tell you that they are just doing their job, but we know it goes beyond that. These men and women have risen above the call of duty and are acting because they care, and for that, we cannot thank them enough.
Outside of national disasters and events that line the front page of our newspapers, there are heroes among us each and every day. These individuals take the face of our parents, family members, friends, or even medical providers who go above and beyond to make sure we are doing better than just ok, they often go unsung and we sometimes forget that they too deserve our utmost gratitude for their impact.
And so, in honor of November being National Diabetes Month, for those of you who are diabetic, DiabetesCare.net is giving you the unique opportunity to show these heroes how much they really mean. By entering their Hero of the Month contest, you have the opportunity to tell your story and recognize a healthcare provider or caretaker that has been important in helping manage your disease on a daily basis. Throughout the month, registered members of DiabetesCare.net will vote to crown November’s Hero.
And… as an even bigger way to say thank you, the winning healthcare provider/caretaker will receive a $500 gift card, while the person that submitted the story will receive a $250 gift card.
For all the rules and additional information about the competition, visit the Hero of the Month page on DiabetesCare.net, and be sure to visit DiabetesCare.net this month and every month as your go-to source for anything diabetes.
