Miss Idaho wears insulin pump in swimsuit competition

Miss Idaho is trending, but it has nothing to do with pageantry. The hashtag "show me your pump" became popular after newly crowned Sierra Sandison, diagnosed with Type I diabetes in 2012, was spotted on stage with her insulin pump by her side. Sandison simultaneously became the face of Idaho and Type I diabetes when she chose to keep her trusted device on her hip during the swimsuit competition--a decision that was met by international applause in the Twitter-verse. The hashtag was picked up by fans, fellow diabetics and even medical device giant Medtronic ($MDT). Story
