TWIN FALLS, Idaho — When a pageant contestant attaches something to her bikini, people are going to take notice.

Miss Idaho invited the social media world to get behind new campaign called #showmeyourpump.

Sierra Sandison faced a personal fear and inspired others by wearing her insulin pump on her bathing suit during a portion of a competition earlier this week.

Then she posted it on Facebook with a call to action.

“I have faced my fear of proudly showing my insulin pump! Now I want to see YOURS! Post your photo on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook– make sure it is shared publicly so I can see it) with the hashtag #showmeyourpump! The nationwide support from my fellow diabetics this weekend has been AMAZING! I can’t wait to see more of you guys! This is not limited to just girls, or to people with pumps — I want to see YOU and whatever your daily battle with diabetes looks like.”

KSTU reported Sandison was diagnosed with Type I diabetes in 2012 and has previously spoken about her fear of wearing her insulin pump in public.
