Strategizing with diabetes and life for half a century, I am proud to announce that I have been awarded a Bronze Medal and Certificate. Short of boasting, this honor confirms that I have been recognized for a remarkable achievement of a successful life with insulin-dependent diabetes. This fact, along with the life-saving and scientific development of oncoming facts concerning this disease, has inspired a prelude to another book. My brief biography may be found at www.MyDiabeticSoul.com. I would like to commend all diabetics and their families for coping with this disease. It certainly has been a challenge, but a blessed one.
