    Such a small world. A lady I follow on Social media named Jill Knapp was the Mrs Idaho and was on the Dr OZ show a few years back. Both of these beauty queens have Diabetes. I have diabetes so I can relate to both. It kicked me in the pants being 22 and getting the diagnosis. Both of these ladies are great examples.
