    For those who have live with diabetes for 10+ years. Eli Lilly gives out "journey awards" for milestone years. We just got ours for her 10 year "diaversary."

    http://www.lillydiabetes.com/lilly-diabetes-journey-awards.aspx



    At Lilly Diabetes, we recognize that every person with diabetes is on a unique and challenging lifelong journey. But they’re not alone—and while we work hard to equip people with the resources they need to help overcome challenges, we’re also here to celebrate the successes.
    The Lilly Diabetes Journey Awards program has recognized thousands of individuals who have successfully managed their diabetes for 10, 25, 50, even 75 years. The awards are meant to honor those who have long been successful, but also to inspire others to believe they can do it, too.
    Healthcare professionals can also support and honor patients in their community with a live presentation Journey Awards ceremony.
    Those who receive Lilly Diabetes Journey Awards are a testament to all people with diabetes that learning how to manage their health and adapting to the ever-changing technology of diabetes care can lead to a long and successful diabetes journey.
    [h=2]MEDALS[/h]Medals are presented to people with diabetes in the United States throughout the year. Applicants must have type 1 diabetes and must have been taking any brand of insulin continuously for 10, 25, 50, or 75 years to qualify. Each recipient receives an elegant award, beautifully engraved with their name, along with a signed letter from our CEO, Dr. John Lechleiter, encouraging their continued success.
    We also invite 75-year award winners to have their names engraved on a special monument on our Indianapolis campus. This monument is a tribute to lives well-lived with type 1 diabetes and reminds us of the long history we share with those who are able to live long, healthy lives by managing their diabetes successfully with insulin therapy.

    WE're at 13 years, but they aren't available here. I think it would be a nice boost to esteem.

    Here are some trophies I'd like to virtually give to all the kids with T1D and their parents for each and every year (and especially the multiples of five years) you wrangle the D beast:

    CONGRATULATIONS! All of us part of this community understands what a monumental achievement that is. It's 3654 days of hard work, that's what it is!
