To be honest, (or as my 16 year- old would say: “TBH”), when I first heard about Diabetes Sisters, I thought it was a support group for black women with diabetes. Really. When have you ever heard white women (or any other ethnic group) refer to themselves as “sisters”? Unless they were related by blood kind of sisters--like the Lennon Sisters (yeah, I’m that old). Black women refer to themselves as sisters rather regularly, hence, my initial confusion.
