Miss Idaho had the insulin pump attached to her bikini


”In the diabetes community, we use the visibility of our devices as a badge of courage and a connector. There is a pride in successfully managing the condition and surviving” said Nicole Johnson, former Miss America 1999, who is also dealing with this ilness. The hashtag “ #showmeyourpump” that Serra Sandisin created on Twitter generated not only the direct answer from other people showing their photo with insulin pumps but opened a way to communication stimulating other illnesses linked communities, such the amputees people. Being socially acceptable even in a such situation give people confidence. On the social network, Ms. Sandison also received thanks from two parents of kids who wear other medical devices: hearing aids and a feeding tube.
