Welcome to my Personal Page
SO MANY LIVES ARE TOUCHED BY DIABETES. CHANCES ARE YOUR LIFE IS TOO.
I have been a Type 1 diabetic now for over 28 years . I have given myself more than 115,000 shots and checked my sugar more than 125,000 times. No one could possibly understand the daily struggle that is being a Type 1 Diabetic. Diabetes is a chronic disease causing stroke and ther number 1 cause of heart failure . it affects your eyes, your limbs, an d your organs and if not controlled can result in horrible health consequences including death I currently have 4 stents due to diabetes, and like all Diabetics I have good days and bad days. It is important for people to understand that while while 90% of all diabetics in the US are Type 2 Diabetics , there is a huge difference between Type 1 and Type 2.
Type 2 Diabtes can normally be contolled with a pill , exercise, and proper diet but needs no insulin on a daily basis to contol their glucose and basically not die. I have been blessed to raise over $ 23,000.00 through the Tour De Cure ifor ther ADA . While I am a type 1 diabetic ( the only one in the 100 mile ride ilast March that I know of ) with that comes a wealth of issues when riding a century or just living my daily life. I am riding in the 101 mile Tour De Cure in Lake Nona on March 31 2019 and the St Petersburg Tour De Cure on April 14 2019 to continue to raise awareness to the unfortunate hyper growth of this disease.
I hope to play a small role in changing the face of Diabetes and helping to raise funds towards a cure, while trying to make others understand how serious and gruesome this disease can be. I have 4 stents in my left descending artery, I have Hashimotos disease ( thyroid) , and I am a type 1 Diabetic BUT I can ride 100 miles, I can enjoy an amazing family, I can be a successful businessman.
Diabetes kills 700 people a day - over 5000 people will find out this week they have the disease- WE CAN FIND A CURE - WE ARE CLOSE - PLEASE HELP ME DO MY PART
DONATE- RIDE WITH ME - GET INVOLVED - CHANCES ARE YOU KNOW SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU THAT IS DIABETIC -
