My son was diagnosed with diabetes type I in 2003. During the year 2015 he blacked out and died in a fiery car wreck. This has been heavy on my mind, was there something that I could have done to prevent that from happening? I came up with many scenarios, but there was really nothing I could have done to prevent my son from dying.
I have decided that I could help in trying to prevent this from happening to somebody else. I’ve done a few things to raise some money for the American Diabetes Association, but nothing really major. I had a dream in the second week of January 2018 that I was raising money riding my motorcycle all over the country and that I raised $90,000.00. I thought this was a great idea so I’m pursuing it.
Journey along with me on the ride of my life, as I travel around the country on my motorcycle, raising awareness. My goal is to raise that $90,000.00. See the incredible roads I travel and the amazing people I meet along the way—working at events, recording videos, and taking photos!
