Sporty Spice Saved Sibling!

Melanie C

Maybe we should call her Melanie "See" from now on?

After all, Melanie C, former sporty singer of The Spice Girls, was the only one to spot the signs that brother Paul O'Neill might have diabetes.

On a family vacation in 2004, Mel noticed her brother was getting slow and lethargic- pretty unusual for a guy that drives racecars for a living!

Her keen amateur diagnosis and insistence that Paul see the doctor probably spiced up saved her bro's life!

”I'm so grateful to Mel for insisting I go to the doctor. I was on the verge of going into a coma. I now know that delaying treatment for type 1 diabetes can cause diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA, a potentially life-threatening complication.”

Paul is lucky to have such a clever and caring sister! Who knew Sporty was such a Smarty?

You go, gurl!
