Last summer, I had the fantastic opportunity to meet up with Dana Heffern - a Type 1 diabetic like myself .  She had been awarded with a scholarship to attain her MFA (Master of Fine Arts) at Goddard College in Plainsfield, Vermont and that year Dana did a show about what Type 1 diabetes is all about since there is sometimes a misunderstanding about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. You can read abit more about my adventure to the USA to meet up with Dana / Ginger and other diabetics (and non) who were involved in this project at this blog link I posted last summer to understand more of what she was trying to show to the audience members (and I think she did a spot on job).  

Just this week, Dana released this much anticipated video putting everything together to make her 2 hour performance say exactly what she had intended the audience to come to understand about diabetes.  As I  told her, I would gladly participate in another one of her shows again (diabetic or not).  She has AMAZING talent.

Click on the picture below - and you will see why I am proud of being part of this project - making new friends (we still keep in contact despite living in different countries).  Diabetes has no boundaries!!
