Rashad Jennings, New York running
back & Diabetes Ambassador
My relationship with diabetes is deeply-rooted and close to my heart. It stems from the most important thing in my life: my family. Diabetes didn’t just take my father’s legs; it gave my family and me a new perspective on life. When I run for a touchdown, I run for my dad and the yards he can no longer run.
Because of my dad, I’m joining other professional football players and diabetes advocates in just a few days to tell Congress about how important it is to support diabetes research and programs.
JOIN ME: TELL CONGRESS TO MAKE DIABETES A PRIORITY
We need your help! We want to have 50,000 signatures on the Stop Diabetes® petition to show Congress that people across the country care about diabetes. But we’re going to Congress soon and we’re short of this goal. Will you add your name today?
30 million Americans live with diabetes and 86 million more have prediabetes. And with every American who develops diabetes, another person faces terrible life-threatening complications.
After signing the petition, help us reach our goal by emailing the petition to your friends and family, and post it on your Facebook and Twitter.
Counting on your support!
American Diabetes Association
