How does a team made up of athletes living with Type 1 diabetes have more or around the same amount of fans on Facebook as the popular pro sports franchises? The answer is simple, inspiration. Team Novo Nordisk is proof that anything is possible in life. A large number of athletes on Team Novo Nordisk were told that they could not be pro athletes because of diabetes. The teams CEO was told he wouldn't see his thirtieth birthday because of diabetes. Team Novo Nordisk is full of athletes that are living amazing lives with diabetes.
They're an inspiration to a child in Denmark living with diabetes that got on a bike because of Team Novo Nordisk. Team Novo Nordisk is inspiring each and every person that lives with or knows someone living with diabetes. It is no secret I wouldn't be alive if Team Novo Nordisk was not created. I absolutely hated diabetes before Team Novo Nordisk, I was having a pity party everyday using diabetes as an excuse. I couldn't start on the high school team because I had diabetes, was that true? No!! I couldn't start because I didn't put the work in to care for my diabetes. I lived twenty years of my life making excuses and hating my diabetes. I was lucky enough to see an ad for Team Novo Nordisk and was inspired. If they could ride their bikes with the best in the world and do so with diabetes I could do the same. That saved my life and has saved thousands of lives all over the world!!
It doesn't matter if you want to be a surgeon that is living with diabetes, or if you want to be the president of the United States that is living with diabetes. Anything is possible with diabetes and no matter what anyone does with diabetes everyone owes a very sincere thank you to Team Novo Nordisk. They are an inspiration to everyone with diabetes. They are showing us everyday what is possible. Team Novo Nordisk never complains about anything when it comes to diabetes, the patriots made it famous but Team Novo Nordisk does their job!! Diabetes management never changes, a pro cyclist with diabetes and a seven year old living with diabetes are the same. It is a full time job managing your diabetes, there are no excuses!!
5 million people are inspired by Team Novo Nordisk, that is an amazing number but personally I'm not happy with that!! I want to see seven million followers on Facebook for Team Novo Nordisk!! Team Novo Nordisk saved my life and so many other lives, if you read this blog be sure to share what you know about Team Novo Nordisk with anyone you know. You never know who will be inspired by Team Novo Nordisk and all that they do for each and every person living with diabetes.
