Welcome to my Tour de Cure page!
I am asking you to support me in the Tour de Cure® because finding a cure for diabetes is urgent and personally means so much to me.
Why does it mean so much to me? Well, I have lived with Type 1 Diabetes since September 1997! Let me just tell you, I have experienced all the ups and downs of the disease. When I was diagnosed I had to take several shots of insulin a day, and poke my finger and squeeze out a drop of blood about the size of my pinky nail! Now, I use lots of technology such as an insulin pump and continuious glucose monitor, and I depend on them, greatly! If you ever see me in person you will almost always see me with something "stuck" to my skin.
This year Tour de Cure celebrates 30 years of making an impact in communities nationwide and I’m riding to champion the over 34 million Americans living with this terrible disease because they need our support.
Help Me Reach My Goal! When you donate you make an immediate impact:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child with diabetes to have the same learning opportunities at school.
- You fund life-saving research that will bring us closer to a cure.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes.
By participating in the Tour de Cure, I hope to inspire others to join me in this vital mission.
Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
