Manny Hernandez is a person of many talents. Manny and his amazing team of colleagues and volunteers have developed one of the most amazing social media networks to help those touched by diabetes. Diabetes Hands Foundation, TuDiabetes and EsTuDiabetes are wonderful nonprofit organizations to help connect those touched by diabetes and to raise diabetes awareness.
Manny and his team have also put together beautiful artistic projects to help transform the lives of those touched by diabetes. The Word in Your Hand project invites participants to share photos showing a word in their hands describing life with diabetes. A very moving project to check out.
Oh, and if your interested in developing a healthier lifestyle be sure to check out their fun and interactive game on Facebook designed in collaboration with the Joslin Diabetes Center. It’s called Healthseeker.
Manny, thanks to you and all of your dedicated volunteers for helping those touched by diabetes and providing transformative experiences for so many people around the world. After all, we are all just one big community.
Manny’s words of wisdom.
1. Take one day at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed.
2. Keep trying, even if it doesn’t all work out the first time don’t give up.
3. Don’t forget the power of community and a social network.
