I have been living with Type 1 Diabetes since 1995. I have seen the devastating effects of uncontrolled diabetes, with my grandfather dying of complications from Type 2 diabetes. I am passionate about raising awareness about Diabetes and also living a healthy lifestyle in spite of having diabetes. Diabetes is not a death sentence but it can be if neglected and not taken serious.
So many lives are touched by diabetes. Today, 29 million Americans are living with the diabetes and this is why I am participating in Team Diabetes and committing to do something about it!
- 1 in 11 Americans is living with diabetes
- 1 in 4 adults who has it doesn't know it.
- 1 in 3 adults is at risk of developing it
In the next 24 hours, 4,660 new cases of diabetes will be diagnosed. That's more than 3 friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members diagnosed with diabetes every minute of every day.
Each dollar I raised will be used to support the American Diabetes Association's mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. I invite you to join me. Please support my efforts, make an impact, and to shape the future of diabetes, and click on the Donate button.
Thank you for making a generous contribution to this cause that is so important to me!
