    Wow. Why haven’t we heared of this marvelous woman earlier. Thank you for your guest blog. I am going to buy your book. It will be an awesome inspiration for my daughter. She has no interest in ballet, but how about vollleyball? Thank you, Zippora for your honesty and transparency of your life. Stay healthy. With love, Carol

    I had the pleasure of watching Zippora dance some years ago. Ironically, I had come to NYC by bus from New Jersey that day, and had brought along my issue of Diabetes Forecast. Zippora was on the front cover of the magazine, but I had no clue that she would be dancing that afternoon in the very ballet I had purchased a ticket for. As a Type I diabetic myself, I was thrilled to be able to watch her magnificent performance. It was a very special day for me!

    Great article. I have a 10 year old T1D. This will be her first year of pointe and this is good for her to hear directly advice from a ballerina who is not only not defined by T1D, but also that her A1C must be controlled to remain in class. She has wanted to do pointe since age 3. T1D for two years. Thank you!
