About True Champions

True Champions features dynamic individuals who are either living with or caring for people who have various chronic conditions. These individuals are true champions because they do not define themselves or their loved ones by their disease. Instead, they are reaching out to help others who are battling similar conditions.

HealthiNation's True Champions inspire and educate others by sharing their personal experiences and successful coping strategies, as well as by actively participating in awareness-building activities.

Manny Hernandez is the founder of the Diabetes Hands Foundation as well as the online communities, www.tudiabetes.org, and the Spanish language community, www.estudiabetes.org.
