Music legend Donna Summer inspires October’s Diabetes Roundtable podcast dedicated to cancer survivors living with diabetes. The one hour whirlwind of wellness is hosted by the happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic

Donna Summer was a woman of many gifts, the greatest being her faith. A five-time Grammy Award winner, Donna Summer truly was the ‘Queen of Disco.’ Her voice was unforgettable, and the music industry has lost a legend far too soon. After a long battle with lung cancer, Donna Summer died at age 63 in 2012.

The Grammy-winning singer was known for the disco hits "Hot Stuff," "Last Dance," "Bad Girls" and many more. Her classic disco tunes found their way into just about every corner of our culture, from 'American Idol' to Beyoncé's 'Naughty Girl.'
 Her iconic 1977 anthem "I Feel Love," which peaked at #6 on the Billboard singles chart (one of 14 top 10 hits), was the first mainstream song to be produced using an entirely synthesized backing track. Until then, most disco recordings had been backed by acoustic orchestras, and the reception to the song revolutionized music.

Donna Summer’s music and life infuses our Hot Topic discussions and Diabetes Numerology Game segments. Special guests include: Music Journalist Christian John Wikane, Patricia Addie Gentle RN, CDE, Neva White DNP, CRNP, CDE, Kathy Gold RN, CDE,  Poet Lorraine Brooks, Mama Rose Marie, CURE Thrift Shop owner Liz Wolff, Digital Divas: Taryn and Jessica and special guest, Jana, who is a breast cancer survivor living with diabetes.
