Why I ride?
I choose to make a difference by taking a stand on Diabetes and doing my part to bring awareness.
My journey started 15 years ago when my grandmother was diagnose with diabities and I've seen how it affected her quality of life. At that moment I made a conscious decision to do my part to bring awareness and help my family and others to shine light on this disease.
I'm not looking for recognition, praise, or accolades but I'm passionate about helping others.
This passion started with my dream of working in the medical field. I'm currently working as a medical assistant now and over the years I've often searched for vehicles that would allow me, coupled with my passion for cycling, to help people in other ways. Participating in the Tour de Cure is one of those vehicles.
Diabetes is a disease that affects everyone whether you or your family are victims of it. It is definitely a growing problem that needs to be eliminated, unfortunately there is no cure,but with the best resources and support in the world there is prevention.
I am forever grateful for all of those willing to help and thank you for supporting me!
