Making Lemonade from Lemons: Meet PWD Kate Beaulieu of Sugardrop Sweetwear

Lemonade from Lemons

Over the many years I’ve spent counseling and working with people with diabetes I’ve met many VERY inspiring people…people who have, as the expression goes, Made Lemonade from Lemons.

They’re showing the world just how well people with diabetes can live. In this column I interviewed fifteen year old Canadian Kate Beaulieu.

It’s a line of clothing and jewelry with a mission – awareness of the signs and symptoms of diabetes. Kudos to Kate! Read here...
