If Type 1 diabetes has a poster child for positive living, it’s Ginger Vieira. Diagnosed in 1999, Ginger embodies can-do spirit: the picture of health, she’s a writer, yoga instructor, life coach — and champion weightlifter.

But Ginger’s good health doesn’t come easily. She works at managing her diabetes 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and wonders what she could accomplish with all that energy if she didn’t have to worry about diabetes. “If there was a cure,” she says in this video, “I could go to sleep at night and dream.”
