    Default Pictures Of My Joslin Medal and Certificate

    My award from Joslin is for 50 years. They give medals for 50 and 75 years. On Sept. 15 I will have my 64'th anniversary of my diagnosis. I will receive my 75 year medal, God willing, in 11 more years.


    The 50 year certificate.

    Thank you so much for sharing those Richard - you continue to raise hope and inspire me as a parent of a child with diabetes.

    The photos of the awesome medals are also greatly appreciated. Of course my hope is you will be cured by the 75th anniversary and celebrating that as well.

    With gratitude,
    Ellen

    Thank you for sharing. And I, too, hope you never get your 75th year medal, as I hope you'll be saying, "I used to have diabetes" by that point in time.
