    As well as a birthday couldn't you lend an idea from world war 2 as in D-Day.
    The day you declare War on Diabetes.

    My daughters Dday is this week 14 of June. She´s got it six years then. I always ask her what she wants to do. Normally she wants a big cake with a lot of sugar :D . This year we are going to have a grill party with her friends.

    Maybe to some people it sounds a little bit weird to celebrate the day, but we think it´s like a present. If she would have been born 100 years ago or if we would live in another country like india she would have been dead and so we are thankful that we live here and now- where we have insuline and the possibility to get it.

    I like to treat myself to Candy Floss on my anniversary! KIDDING! Mine is the 8th Feb 2005... It was Pancake Tuesday & a nurse in A&E asked me what was I going to give up for lent! I was still in shock from the news of being diagnosed that I said "apparently I've given up my Pancreas"
