    Buy this sticker! I don’t normally leave reviews but I can’t help myself with this one! The sticker is AMAZING! Super high quality material and vibrant colors. My mom has been a type one for over 40 years and spent her career as a nurse and diabetes educator. I am always looking for a gift that supports the cause and finding a cure. This sticker is for a water bottle I got her for Christmas. I know she will take it everywhere. Not only will it be a great conversation starter but Courtney also donates with each purchase! Shipping was fast and the personalized card is still on our mantle! Thank you so much Courtney! My mom is gonna love it!!!

Hi I'm A Type 2 Diabetic

My name is Courtney DelaCruz. I am 27 years old and I have Type 2 diabetes. I watched diabetes deteriorate my dad until he passed away in 2014 at the age of 43. Diabetes leads to so many complications and I never really understood what it was and what you could do about it until I got it myself in 2017. I started my blog, The Young and Diabetic, to help educate people about diabetes and how to hopefully manage it and bring it under control. My blog has also been a way for me to help manage my own diabetes in a way. I opened this shop to help me make money to run my blog and also donate towards diabetes research while also offering really cool stickers and hopefully other merchandise later on. If you have or know someone who has diabetes, then you know just how this disease can affect someone and how alone you can feel sometimes. I'm here to tell you, I'm with you and I will be here for you if you ever need someone to talk to. Thank you.
