Hey Dad, look -- No Diabetes!!!
That's what I'd love to be able to say to my Dad someday...That's what I'd love to be able to say to my Dad someday. Not "Hey Dad, look -- no hands", as I did when I was a kid on his midnight blue Schwinn, but "Hey Dad, look -- No Diabetes" as an adult. Diabetes is a lousy disease, one that has effected my Dad and millions of others. Dad still plays tennis and golf, and swims, at age 74, but diabetes has taken a toll on him. I ride in the Tour de Cure to show my Dad that I recognize he's had to fight this disease, for all the others who have been effected, and with the hope that someday I can see diabetes wiped out, so I can say "Hey Dad, look -- No Diabetes".
