I recently entered a contest for women who have achieved and overcame something in their lives, and I decided to write about my diagnosis of diabetes. If you can please vote for me, I may have a chance to win, which would help me afford a pump so I don`t have to do MDI`s forever! Thanks! You can find it at the link below, and you can vote once per day! Every vote helps!

Here it is...

One more day ...how/where are you Christine ? ..remember folks are voting for you wanting a pump daily ...I am a pumper since 2001
.
I belong to those , who did not win the Can Achieve daily draw of $ 100,00 :( ...had I won , the winnings would have gone towards my fund raising with Team Diabetes ( Oct .9 Kelowna Marathon ) ...CDA's fund raising tool for advocacy federally and provincially in particular .I believe in PWD having tools available to manage diabetes .
Now the voting starts soon with everyone who posted their story being a winner !
Can Achieve is now stating : contest closes Sunday midnight ...one more chance !
Best of luck to you Christine on this final voting day! :)
