Welcome to My Tour de Cure Web Page!
I am riding because the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure is my opportunity to contribute to the disease that I live with every single day - Type 1 Diabetes. It's a way for me to demonstrate my appreciation to those researching a cure, while offering gratitude to the latest Diabetes management technologies like Continuous Glucose Monitoring and Insulin Pump Therapy that make my life possible day after day.
I am committed to ride and raise money in this event because I want to prove (to myself) that I can live with the disease and be even more active than I was prior to being diagnosed in 2008. I also like the fact that the ride raises awareness about Diabetes, what it is, how people who have it live differently and why it's not 'their fault' that they got the disease. Prior to my diagnosis, 'Diabetes' was something other people had and I really didn't know much about it.
By making a donation on my behalf or by joining my team, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
