I am riding because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is so much more than a cycling event to me. It is my opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.
I am committed to ride and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I am one of them, and I want to do something about it. Won’t you help me start a chain reaction?
Last year we started off on a Keto adventure. I miss the carbs but blood sugar is seen significant improvement. Speaking of adventures, with the help of my sweetie, I am on track. My weight is down 81 pounds, my blood chemistry is the best it has been in 20 years, and I am off medications.
With your help, we will fight for a future where a parent does not have to hear that their child has diabetes. A future where an adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a diabetes diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
