Abstract/Description: On Wednesday, June 5, 2019 the diabetes community lost a guiding light for what it means to live your best life, with diabetes, despite complications. Kimberly Hilsop, a friend and advocate for every person with diabetes that she encountered, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 37 due to complications related to living with type 1 diabetes. For those of us who knew her and were fortunate enough to call her a friend, we have been forced to consider our own mortality, and learn to host an emptiness that Kim’s presence left vacated. In the years that I knew Kim, she taught me that the most important part about people living with diabetes was never the “with diabetes” piece. It was always about the people, and it was always about living.
