In recent months I have posted online in a couple of places that I have observed that when the medal office posts a picture of the 50-year medal, usually it shows just one of the two sides - the runner with the torch. I suspect this is because that's the more artistic of the two sides. The other side is all text. But to me, and I suspect to most recipients, that text is so important: "For 50 Courageous Years With Diabetes".


Two days ago I received a card from our researcher, Hillary Keenan. She said "FYI I've started using 'For 50 courageous years with diabetes' rather than the other side." Thank you, Hillary. That really means a lot to me.
