sheeezzzzzz. Am i gonna have to keep you all up to date. Julia ... I'm surprised you didn't jump on this. Well actually, since I already mentioned how Iza and I both know the feeling of a sibling with Diabetes ... I guess it's appropriate that I did this.

This is from today

Izabel Goulart is on a misson. The Brazilian beauty has devoted her time and effort to charity work for diabetes and has recently been named the International Ambassador for the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI). Growing up with a brother who has had the disease since infancy made a strong impact on Goulart and during her speech to the DRI she was visibly moved by his struggles. Naturally, when devotion to a cause is heartfelt it makes giving back all the more meaningful. (See our interview with Izabel below).

What is it like to have someone you love so much living with diabetes? Diabetes is a disease that's had a deep impact on my family. My little brother has had type 1 diabetes since he was a baby and I have spent time learning about the disease and trying to bring attention to it so that one day soon we will reach a cure. I believe that the Diabetes Research Institute will find this cure.

People have this misconception that diabetes is not as much as fatal acondition like cancer can be. What's the biggest hurdle people with diabetes face every day and why is it such a dangerous disease? Type 1 diabetes can be a very fatal disease. People with type 1 diabetes whose blood sugars are out of balance are at risk of suffering very dire consequences and even if they can avoid that they suffer from infections, loss of vision and many of the same things that plague people with type 2 diabetes which can include loss of limbs, failure of major organs. It goes on and on. What's so sad about this disease is that it can strike seemingly healthy people, often children as was the case with my brother, and that it's very hard to control. It's life changing for the person who gets it and for everyone around them. That's why I'm working with the Diabetes Research Institute to help find a cure now.

How do you hope to help by being the spokesperson for DRI? I've seen with my own eyes how difficult it is for my brother to live with type 1 diabetes and if I can use my travels and profession to raise awareness for a cure that's what I want to do. This gives me the opportunity to raise awareness for diabetes research and the Diabetes Research Institute. Anything I can do to spread the message about the DRI's mission to find a cure will help them. And if I can help the DRI, I can help my brother and millions of others who are waiting for a cure for diabetes.

It's very touching. She even breaks down and cries. This speech was given last thursday.
