Inspired by Diabetes U.S. National Contest Winners Share Stories of Perseverance and Success in Managing Diabetes

etition. Winners of the global contest will be announced this fall.

The U.S. Grand Prize winners of the Inspired by Diabetes Creative Expression Competition represent four categories: Adult with Diabetes, Child with Diabetes, Family Member or Friend of someone with diabetes and Health Care Professional.

-- Adult with Diabetes - Betsy Ray, Colorado

After managing diabetes for 43 years, Ray is working on a master's

degree in psychology to serve as a resource to newly-diagnosed children

with diabetes. Her motivation was born out of her desire to help others

see diabetes in a new light, beyond the often negative constructs of

the disease. Ray entered an essay called "The Journey."

"As I reflect upon challenges I have faced as a result of diabetes ...

I must also acknowledge the rewards," she wrote. "Diabetes has grown my

spirit in a way that no normal life ever could ... It is so far beyond

what I was told my life would be that I can only respond to the people

I meet by telling them 'Anything is possible. You are on a journey. How

you define it is up to you.'"

-- Child with Diabetes - Erin Tetreault, Idaho

Tetreault, 17, was diagnosed with diabetes at age 9. Inspired by her

experiences at diabetes summer camp -- where she first learned about

the Inspired by Diabetes campaign -- Tetreault hopes that more young

people with diabetes can benefit from the emotional and educational

support that these specialty camps provide. Her painting,

"Self-Acceptance," depicts a young woman wearing an insulin pump.

"Four years ago I would have been too self-conscious to paint my bare

stomach with my pump proudly displayed," she wrote in her accompanying

narrative. But because of diabetes camp, "I've learned to be myself and

not worry if I'm different or not accepted."
