      Miss Idaho Sierra Sandison bikini pic with insulin pump goes viral

      NAMPA, Idaho (KBOI) -- Sierra Sandison of Twin Falls has had a busy week.

      The Magic Valley woman was just crowned Miss Idaho in Nampa last weekend, but that's just the beginning. A photo of 20-year-old Sandison, who has type 1 Diabetes, wearing a bikini with an insulin pump on her right hip, has gone viral and hit the Internet hard.

      The hashtag #ShowMeYourPump has the Miss Idaho Organization Facebook page flooded with submitted photos of people from around the country sharing their pump photos.

      "I am so overwhelmed," Sandison told USA Today. "But at the same time, it's wonderful. I am just a normal person, so it's difficult to wrap my head around the fact that so many people look up to me now."
