Labelle Hosts Diabetes Freedom Day

Soul veteran PATTI LaBELLE has raised the profile of diabetes, by hosting the first ever Diabetes Freedom Day.

The LADY MARMALADE singer held the event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Thursday (28OCT04), and she hopes it will encourage more people with the condition to look after themselves so they can live life to the fullest.

LaBelle, who has type 2 diabetes, says, "Diabetes freedom is all about attitude. My positive, take-charge approach has allowed me to successfully manage my diabetes. It's the first step toward leading a healthier life."
