- This Diabetes Awareness Month, we are celebrating diabetes Warriors everywhere. For every Warrior Call that is shared or posted Dexcom will donate $1 to Children with Diabetes and other charities supporting T1D. Just upload your best Warrior Call to Facebook or Instagram. It can be a photo, a look, a shout or a song. Tag @Dexcom, use #WarriorUp and raise awareness during the month of November. Learn more at Dexcom's Call of the Warrior Challenge and see our Tween Warrior Call and Elementary Warrior Call from Friends for Life Falls Church 2017.

- The Featured Book of the Week is The Fight to Survive: A Young Girl, Diabetes, and the Discovery of Insulin by Caroline Cox.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My 5 year old daughter woke one morning low, so I gave her a couple of glucose tabs to suck on while I prepared breakfast. She decided to go upstairs to wake her aunt who was visiting for the weekend. She woke her aunt and showed her the glucose tabs in her mouth. Her aunt asked her jokingly if she had candy for breakfast every morning to which my daughter replied, "Only on the mornings mummy says 'Jesus Christ.'"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when for Halloween your child dresses up as a sharps box. See more parent humor.
