Welcome to my Personal Page!
Welcome to my fundraising page!
I am asking you to support me in the Tour de Cure® because finding a cure for diabetes means a great deal to me.
I joined the Tour de Cure because today alone over 4,100 people will be diagnosed and because more than 30 million adults and children in the United States are living with this terrible disease. I ride in memory of my son Jay who came down with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 27 and he was never the same. He passed away in October 2014 and I am hoping that someday I will see the end of the disease that contributed to his death. In the meantime, If I can do something that makes it easier for those living with the disease and that gives them hope for the future, I will.
This will be my third Tour de Cure campaign and I have been blessed to have so many supporters over the past two years. Combined, we have raised over $55,000 for the good works carried out by the American Diabetes Association. Great strides are being made with advances in technology. The first artificial pancreas was approved by the FDA in 2016 and research has led to the cure of Type 1 diabetes in lab mice. I hope we are just a few years away from curing it in humans.
Please Help Me Reach My Goal!
When you donate:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.
- You fund life-saving research.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes
By participating in the Tour de Cure, I hope to inspire others to join me and raise money for the good works of the ADA.
Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me and many others.
All the best,
