Welcome to Timm Green's Step Out Page!
I am Stepping Out so I can talk about diabetes in the past tense. The phrase "I had diabetes" is a dream of mine and I need your help to make it a reality.
I was diagnosed as a diabetic on March 23rd, 1990. Exactly 20 years later on March 23, 2010 my daughter Natalie was born. I am Stepping Out because I don't want my daughter or anyone else to ever hear "you have diabetes." I am Stepping Out for all of my good friends I wish I never had to meet attending and working at Camp Glyndon, a camp for diabetic children. I am Stepping Out for my Dad who supported me as a diabetic child and now lives with diabetes as well. I am Stepping Out for everyone else who knows someone living with diabetes.
I am Stepping Out because the American Diabetes Association's Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is so much more than a fundraising 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 walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I personally know some of them, and I want to do something about it.
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!
