“At first glance, D.I.A.B.E.T.E.S. is Difficult, Intense, Anxious, Bothersome, Everyday, Timely, Eerie, and Sugarfree. But as a whole, D.I.A.B.E.T.E.S. is Discovering Internal Abilities to Boldly Encounter The Earth with a Smile. Sometimes life can be hard (for everyone), but you can do anything you set your mind to even with diabetes. Nothing can stop you if you approach it with the right attitude!”
- Christine Burns, 19 years old from Sandy, Utah, USA, diabetic.
Christine will spend a day with Nick Jonas at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Los Angeles Walk to Cure Diabetes. She will also appear in the World Diabetes Day video with Nick to be launched on November 14, 2011 on www.NickSimpleWins.com. All of these she earned after winning Nick Jonas' and Bayer's "Simple Inspirations" contest.
Nick Jonas, who sang with his brothers in the famous teen boy band Jonas Brothers, was diagnosed with diabetes at age 13. Now 19, he is working with Bayer to inspire and educate young people with diabetes. On the site, you will see his blog where he writes about his life as a young person with a lifestyle that is not slowed by diabetes.
