My Mom Lives With Diabetes

Diabetes has been a part of my mothers life for over 10 years now.

Diabetes has been a part of my mothers life for over 10 years now. Once a very strong, very active, and well fit person, diabetes has made life very difficult for her. She has very little to no feeling left in her legs and feet which makes it very hard to remain self mobile. This disease had a hold of my mom long before she gave in and began treatment. Due to her denying that anything was wrong for so long, the damage that was done is irreversible. She has suffered from 2 strokes and a mild heart-attack brought on by diabetes. I love the "Ride to Live" organization because it gets the word out there. Education of this disease is very important to getting treament and eventually finding a cure. My husband I made our first ride in 2005 and you can bet we'll be riding with "Ride to Live" from now on!! Thank you for everything you do. Kristen & Robert Wilkinson
