NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mediaplanet's United for Diabetes CampaignThe dictionary defines hope as "the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best."  As a diabetic this is what gets me out of bed in the morning; hope that today will be better than yesterday.  Hope that one day I will not have a giant roadblock to overcome each day just to reach a level playing field.

There is no avoiding the fact that diabetes, both type 1 and type 2, impacts all aspects of a diabetic's life.  It is the first thought in the morning and the last before sleep.  Even with the best control, diabetes take a tremendous physical and mental toll; when blood sugar is high or low, as it most often is even under the tightest of control, it inhibits the ability to think properly, decreases motor skills and makes the simplest of tasks seem impossible.

This November Mediaplanet is partnering with basketball superstar Ray Allen, DLife, the American Academy of Diabetes Educators, Defeat Diabetes, JDRF, Diabetes Well Being, the Faustman Labs, Diabetes Connect, Advanced Biohealing, United Concordia, Allscripts, Tandem Diabetes, ExtendBar, Domino Sugar, Medtronic, Canyon Healthcare and many others for National Diabetes Month to educate and inspire our readers to take control of their diabetes.  Between USA Today and our association partners we will reach millions of readers within the diabetic community to create and a broader national audience to inspire hope knowing that we are not alone and that a cure is on the horizon.
